My husband is a workaholic, averaging 70 hrs a week. In the 10 yrs we've been together, it is harder & harder to slow him down. He's is irratible, & is hurting his relationships with the family. He comes home late, eats, and falls asleep. He has been too tired to shower, too busy to get hair-cuts and take care of himself. I cannot make him understand that this is a serious problem. He's not involved in his home, marriage, kids.. If it isn't making a buck, he pays no attention. His down time is drinking beer, sometimes too much, and talking about work. He is aware that his family is miserable, yet makes no effort. How can I get us help? I've tried counseling, kicking him out, and I even got him to agree to taking Sundays off at least. Now he says he needs to work Sundays because of course we need the money.
