My partner regularly wees in our bed because of his drinking habits | The Sun10/26/2022
DEAR DEIDRE: EVERY time he drinks, my partner wets the bed and I wake up in urine-drenched sheets.
When I talk to him about it he isn’t embarrassed or upset. He just blames the alcohol.
But I know that it isn’t normal for a man of 45 to do this regularly. It’s clear he has a drinking problem, although he denies it.
I’m 40, and at the end of my tether. I’m not sure how much longer I can stay in our relationship.
He’s been getting drunk three or four times a week for the past nine months.
I have started dreading being in the same bed as him as I know I will have to change the sheets in the middle of the night.

DEIDRE SAYS: Alcohol is a diuretic, which increases the need to urinate.
It also suppresses a hormone that stops us peeing while asleep.
You are right – it’s not normal for a man of his age to wet the bed regularly.
Urge him to see his GP soon. My support pack, Problem Drinker In The Family, should also help.
