My wife starts drinking from 3pm every day and passes out by 9pm

DEAR DEIDRE: MY wife starts drinking from 3pm every day. She drinks the cheapest white wine she can find and normally passes out on the sofa by 9pm.

But she insists she isn’t an alcoholic. She won’t go to group therapy or even see our doctor.

I am a man of 55, she is 51. Our lives are completely out of step and it’s worse this past year as we hardly go out or see anyone. She is a PA and is working from home, which hasn’t helped. 

Since our youngest daughter left three years ago, my wife has been drinking at least two bottles of wine every day.

DEIDRE SAYS: You can not make her give up drinking simply by insisting she does. As with all addictions, she has to want to do it for herself.

Explain to her you are worried about her health and you want her to be around for your future.

Try to organise some activities you can do in the afternoons together – perhaps a walk or some DIY? I’m sending you my support pack Drink Problem. You should read it together.
