Hello and welcome,

Your wife made her own choices and you don't really know whether leaving her would have resulted in a different outcome. I can understand why this is all so fraught with emotion and guilt for you.

It might really help you to discuss this with a therapist, to process the issues involved and your loss itself. Don't let yourself become another casualty of her drinking.
