Advice Please

My partner is an alcoholic. Every time my partner drinks it really upsets me. We have had some really shitty moments due to excessive alcohol. I don’t feel like I can talk to any of my family or friends about this.

I don’t know anyone who is in a similar situation and I just feel so alone. I’ve considered joining Al-Anon- I’m just not sure if it’s right for me.

Is there anyone here that I can talk to? Someone who won’t judge me? Someone who’s currently in, or was in a similar situation?

        Or says someone who has been there and turned to a substance to drown their sorrows. Mental abuse from someone who claims to love you is just as traumatic as physical abuse. The one with no brain is the one doing the abuse putting someone down for an actual common occurance.

      you have no idea of the reasons he drinks. typical substance abuser’s stance…..blame others,accept no personal responsibility.

      Typical response from someone who is accustomed to blaming others and never holding themselves accountable for their own actions

    you’ve got the right idea id say al-anon or maybe a free local counselling service might help a bit just so you can talk stuff out.. and also ive heard making sure you are putting your own mental well being first is important. my mother bottled up her feelings for years because of shame or feeling that “when he is better i’ll feel better” type of mindset and was in denial on how badly his alcoholism effected her.. she tells me now that she wished she had known that you can’t wait around for people to recover because some wont until after decades and some never do, keep your own health and life going and when ur husband is ready to quit you will be strong enough to support him (my father still hasn’t recovered but i think the point is that she would be ready to help if he was ready) wishing you all the best

    You are definitely not alone. I have heard al-anon can help but understand your reservation.
