How does one deal with the intake of alcohol from ones spouse, last night I experienced someting most awful.
My spouse was under the influence and seemed like a devil,,,he had this unblinking stare,,,no movement in his pupils,,,,I swear he would ve hurt me if I didn't scream at him,,,that woke him up to verbal abuse,,,,is there a problem with him,,,,this morning he was all apologetic,,should I worry,,,,this is really stressing me out as its not the first time to encounter this behaviour..

Very few people are improved by alcohol, though they often get the false impression that they are. This certainly sounds like a problem, and he should be careful to avoid alcohol until he can see a shrink and be checked out. Especially as this isnt the first time. Some people react pathologically to alcohol, and need to avoid it permanently.
