    Can't Handle the Pain Anymore

    I met my lover whom we will call heartbreaker. I just left his place and to my surprise i kicked a chair across the room and yelled out loud that i was a very stupid person. This was not me. I have never showed anger and frusteration like this. Calling myself stupid was to let...

    We have only known each other

    for 3 months. I never believed in love at first sight until I met this man. Things were amazing for the first month. He painted this great picture of himself, but it was a facade. He lied about everything. We lived in different states so it was easy for him to hide it from me...

    I Can't Live With Or Without Him!!

    Done

    It took 3 years for me to leave. I enabled, I mothered, I punished, I coddled. Not once did I try to get him professional help. I've thought that maybe I should have tried harder. Now I realize that it would not have mattered what I did. I was not a trained professional. I...

    I have been married now

    for over 24 years. My husband was always a drinker but never like in the past 4 years. When he retired from the Service he lost a part of himself and started drinking heavily every night. Of course we would argue and fight whenever I would say something about it but he'd just...

    Confusion

    It all started as something not so serious, just one of those relationships you're in just to be in. But over the two years I've grown to love him. By the time I realized he was an alcoholic it was too late, I was already in too deep to leave. Things got really bad, most of the...

    I have been in a relationship

    for 9 years with a man I truly love and couldn't see my life without. However, I feel he truly is an alcoholic, although I never saw it before, maybe I was in denial. In 2009, he was arrested for drunk driving, there were circumstances and he was upset, later he told me he was...
