“Brooke says that me drinking is a big part of our problem,” says Jack. “I say my drinking is how I deal with the problem.”
Jack admits he gets angry with Brooke who he claims rages at him whenever he questions her beliefs. “When Brooke starts her demeaning remarks and belittling me, it pushes me to grab another beer – It’s my escape.” Jack says he sometimes drinks up to 18 beers in a single day.
“When you see anger, It is nothing more than an outward manifestation of hurt, fear, or frustration,” says Dr. Phil on Monday’s episode.
