husband won't not drink at home to help me give up alcohol

I would like to know if I am being unreasonable by asking my husband to stop drinking in the house whilst I get myself into a better place in terms of alcohol. He did originally agree but two weeks in he is now having an evening beer and it is making really hard for me not to join him.

He is generally very supportive but like me (increasingly) relies on a drink in the evening to unwind. He thinks that I am being extreme in wanting to stop drinking and after a conversation last night about the beer it seems that he pretty resentful of the request as he doesn't feel he has an issue and should be able to enjoy a beer when he finishes work.

Not sure if I am going to be able to get myself sorted on this basis and to be honest pretty upset that this is his stance. Am i asking too much? Would love some thoughts.
