Dating alcoholic like two different people

My husband is mean and verbally abusive to me when he drinks.

Insults belittling and very hurtful things come out of his mouth.

I actually am so appalled that I freeze while his bitter insults act like knives that are stabbing me.

He tells me how he was so much happier before he met me and that I am a terrible mother and that everyone thinks that I am not good enough for him.

Are these his true feelings that are coming out when he drinks?

It is important to state that individuals react differently to alcohol.

There are people who become “happy drunks.” They are people whose aggression is not released when they are drinking, even if they may become more outgoing.

The way a person reacts to alcohol seems to depend on such things as their genetics, constitution, neurological system, and many other imponderable factors.

In contrast to those who are the happy drunks are those who become rageful when they are drinking.

How quickly they become rageful also varies according to the same variable factors mentioned above.

For some, rage can begin after one drink while for others, it may take many drinks.

For those who experience this release of aggression after drinking the speed of the onset of their belligerence may depend on their recent mood and stress level.

The point that is being emphasized here is that for those people who become irritable while drinking it can seem as though a personality change or transformation has occurred to the loved ones surrounding this person.

Of course, the transformation is not permanent and the previously inebriated individual returns to baseline after they recover from the drinking episode.
