My husband is an alcoholic. He quit ALL drinking because he said God told him to. Well I am all for what ever reason he quit. BUT...he is going crazy. He is calling my family members and telling them that Jesus loves them. He said God told him to do it. HELP!

@treasures4u1,
Have him in for a physical. No matter what, sudden changes in behavior are something to be investigated. He might be fine, but it's better to have him checked out.

He may have had a religious experience--aka--cosmic consciousness. Probably, he was brought up in a conservative Christian household, and the only way he could interpret this experience is in a conservative Christian context. Talk to him about this before you label him as crazy.

@treasures4u1,
Apart from having a religious experience, it may be his way of keeping his mind of alcohol...by investing himself in something very different.

Many psychologists believe that you do not break habits, but rather, replace one habit with another.

Your husband needs mental help, before he hurts himself or others.

@treasures4u1,
Psychologically what is real is his personal experience with God prompting him to let go of a vice - the alcohol.

The problem is that in his mind, he is applying his own experience in terms of the world. He thinks that just because God told him to stop being an alcoholic that God wants him to inform the whole world and evangelize. While his intentions are nice, his approach is socially inappropriate.

You need to talk to him and let him know that you really appreciate his intention to try and help out your family members and others and that is a wonderful thing to show his heart is in the right place but that you would appreciate it if he could please stop calling your family members as it is creating lots of stress in their lives.

Be sure to let him know that you really do appreciate and respect his decision to give up the alcohol.

See a doctor and everything will be just fine. A specialist will guide you through any troubled phase in your life and prevent it from going out of control. Alcoholism is curable, but remember, he needs your support.
