    Fell in love with him three years ago.

    Was the only person that I ever hoped for marriage and kids with. Unfortunately his addiction to alcohol began to unravel. I broke up with him a yr ago and have spent that time trying to move forward. Therapy, yoga, meditation, dating, vacations, shopping, grieving...nothing...

    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...

    I Can't Live With Or Without Him!!

    It all started at Safeway. I was working as an undercover shopper catching shop lifters and Johnny bought dinner from the deli that night. We chatted briefly by the chip aisle - small talk about favorite chips. He chose Creamy Dill. (His nick name sometimes!) I was extremely...

    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...

    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...

    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...
