I have been married for 2 years to a substance abuse counselor. She left me a month ago because she said i drank to much. i was drinking 6 beers an evening thursday through sunday. i did this for the past 2 years. she tried to make me stop but i said no you cannot tell me what to do. so she left. does this seem right? is this too much drinking? or just because she is an abuse counselor this makes me a problem drinker? i have taken on-line quizzes and visited an abuse counselor. all of them indicated i might have some red flags and maybe just cut back a little. that is not a problem. i have cut back to 3 beers on friday and saturday with a few non-alcoholic beers thrown in. i understand her point and took action. she has been gone for a month with little contact. do you think this is normal behavior? she does not want a divorce. she is very catholic. do you think that she is over thinking this and that because of her job she thinks the worse of people (he is an alcoholic and he needs to abstain before i come home!!!) ..even her husband?
