Default Need Support/Advice alcoholic ex

My ex husband doesn't seem to understand the importance of not drinking alcohol when the children are in his care. Because we have discussed this before I have now denied him access to the children until we go to court.
I'm just wondering how others who have experienced this, dealt with it. How do you deal with someone who won't stop drinking or anything else and convince them it's for the childrens benefit. I feel guilty. I do. Our daughter will be 4 this weekend and he's going to miss her bday. Our son is only 18 months. I asked him what if our son woke and climbed out of his crib and fell and broke and arm or collar bone when he's passed out, downstairs on the couch?
I quit drinking and smoking nearly 5 years ago for my children. I don't understand why he can't quit for 2 days a week. He doesn't seem to understand the importance. I'm looking for advice on how to cope with the guilt and stress of keeping my children from their father even if it is for their own good...
