 Living With An Alcoholic Spouse

     Do you have...

  • an alcoholic spouse

  • an alcoholic husband

  • an alcoholic wife

  • an alcoholic friend or...

  • an alcoholic partner

If you do, you are not alone. There are thousands of people all over the world experiencing very much the same thing as you because the person they have chosen to live with is an alcoholic.

Chances are, things weren't always that way but over a period of maybe months or years everything's changed.

Maybe you and your partner were social drinkers for years but you always knew when you'd had enough and when to stop drinking, so things never got out of control and it was never a problem.  

But now...things are very different...

and you think that person you love is an alcoholic.

Their drinking has got out of control and is having a very negative impact on you and your family.

You've had enough and you want things to change!

...It isn't unusual for relationships to break down or for the person you chose to spend your life with to change in some way but discovering that your spouse is an alcoholic is more than you bargained for and very difficult to come to terms with.

You may feel alone and too ashamed to talk to anyone about your "alcoholic wife" or your "alcoholic husband" and even if you do, if the person you are sharing your problems with hasn't had any similar experiences, they will never understand just what you are going through.

There are so many things to be considered such as:

  • What about the the alcoholic's right to privacy?

  • What are the issues for the children involved?

  • What's happening with your alcoholic husbands job, business or career? Apart from the chance of him losing his job, are there any safety issue that could involve colleagues or clients?

  • Are there legal issues - is your alcoholic wife driving under the influence of alcohol and with children in the car?

  • What kind of mental, emotional or physical abuse are you putting up with because of your alcoholic partner's behavior?

  • Are you constantly being blamed for everything that's going wrong in their life?

And so it goes on...

It doesn't matter whether you or your loved one is a doctor, a solicitor, a teacher, a bus driver or a farmer...this condition can affect anyone at any time and from every walk of life.

An alcoholic wife, an alcoholic husband, an alcoholic friend or spouse isn't some down and out person who is walking around with a bottle in a brown paper bag!

More often than not they may appear to be quite functional to the world outside but it's the people close to them who know what's really going on.

Its a world of denial, of secrecy and lies. Noone knows what goes on behind closed doors.

For all you know, you may have an alcoholic friend living next door who hides his/her drinking so well that you have no idea of the problems that their loved ones are experiencing.

You don't have to keep living like this. There are things that you can do that can turn your life around.

You can't stop your alcoholic spouse from drinking - he/she has to do it for him/herself.

But there are things you can do which can have a significant impact on their behavior and their alcoholic drinking.


It is my experience through working closely with alcoholics and their families that most people, with the very best intentions, approach the problem in the wrong way by doing things for their loved one that they should be doing for themselves.

By having a better understanding of how this "disease of addiction/alcoholism" manifests you can learn different ways to manage your life and to help your alcoholic spouse on to the road of recovery.

Knowing what to do and what not to do is the key...


And it isn't easy!
You need to know where and how to get support for yourself and your family when you are going through the challenge of helping your loved one to make the necessary changes.
