Firstly, Nux-vomica will not help him unless his whole case, all his symptoms, his history, his mental and emotional state, all fits the picture of Nux-v.
Secondly, our medicines have serious side effects at times. You should not be giving anyone a homoeopathic medicine without knowing what you are doing (being trained to do it).
Thirdly, it is highly unethical to be sneaking a medicine into his body. What will you do if he starts getting side effects? Will you tell him then? What do you think he will do, once he finds out? What if his health is harmed by the remedy - is that something you will be happy to live with? And lastly, how will you manage any of his reactions without his co-operation? He is just as likely to head off to the doctor or hospital or even self-medicate with more alcohol, when the remedy begins creating those side effects. Imagine him ending up taking drugs prescribed by a doctor, because he has no idea he is under homoeopathic treatment.
This really is not how you should be handling it.
I remember quite clearly a case on this forum, where a prescriber here allowed someone posting, to give Lachesis to their violent alcoholic husband without his permission or knowledge. When the remedy took effect, he became much worse, and ended up being arrested by the police and put in jail because she became frightened for her safety.
Homoeopathy is not a toy. It is a very powerful medical tool that should only be used in the way it is meant to be used.
Alcoholism is a complex disease that affects all levels of a person, all parts of their life. You cannot just 'fix' it by giving a medicine. Such cases, and I have had many of them in clinic, take a lot of work, time and patience to solve.
Even if you ignored all the principles of homoeopathy and only used the name of his condition to prescribe, there are over 200 homoeopathic medicines known to treat alcoholism.
