Alcoholic and dating again
But in the end, it will always lead you in the right direction. And it I'm getting back to my blogging roots on Wendy Piersall.com: writing about life, art, business, publishing, and following your heart.I'm here to inspire, encourage, and share my journey.
If you're a carer for a problem drinker, finding help can be a frustrating experience.People who care for problem drinkers sometimes have to struggle to get the recognition and support they're entitled to."They have not always been perceived as 'legitimate' carers," says Drew Lindon of The Princess Royal Trust for Carers (now the Carers Trust).Remember also, if you decide to stay, then you must also take responsibility for that. I can tell you this: Making the decision to leave my husband was the ONLY THING that could have happened in his life for him to make the decision to get sober.I had to take a huge risk, knowing full well that I could have ended up single, or he could have been lying to me once again.To find your local carer centres and services, use our service directory.
The shame often associated with alcoholism, as well as denial, can be an obstacle to getting help.
To each and every one of you, first of all, my heart goes out to you. I did the Google searches too, seeking a way out of the pain and anguish of my everyday life.
But the truth of the matter is that you have found this site because you already know you can’t continue to live your life the way you are currently living it, with an alcoholic spouse at your side.
Many of you have shared your personal stories of the pain of living with an alcoholic in your life in the comments below.
I encourage you to share what you want, and read through what people have said as well.
I am not a counselor, and am not able to provide you with professional help with your situation.
