7. Something I always told the family

when the alcoholic was not able/willing to get help...

Leave at the first sign of violence and never doubt it will be repeated, physical safety for self and children is rule #1.

2. Get help for yourself so you can learn how to remain sane while deciding what to do.
3. If the alcoholic is drinking as much as you say, he will need medical detox/inpatient treatment,
because withdrawal symptooms can be deadly.

4. If all else fails, get a good insurance policy on the guy.
