My ex and I have been seperated for over a year. We were married for 10 years and have a 9 year old son together. With his job he stays out of town during the week and home on the weekends. He gets our son ever other weekend although we have joint custody. My mother is office staff where he works and has been getting reports from the guys he works with out of town about his drinking issue and how much he drinks and tries to push it off on other people. My ex is very private and defensive. He is also mentally and verbal abusive toward me which is why we are no longer together. Since my mom works with him she don't want him to know she has told me these things. I'm not sure how to confront him about the issue. I could careless what he does during his free time but I'm worried about what he does when he has my son. He had his girlfriend and her older children over at his house this weekend when he had my son. I'm not sure of their drinking habits but it bothers me that they both may be drunk while my son is there. I'm stuck and don't know what to do. When he dropped my son off at my house yesterday I saw a bottle of Vodka and Cranberry Juice in the back seat. He was out his way out of town so I'm assuming that is where it was going. I"m trying to find the best way to ask him about this but I fear that no matter the approach it will be explosive.
