Hi all, new to the site, child of alcoholics, married to an alcoholic but I myself do not have a problem, I am not much of a drinker. I was doing a search because my husband drinks and hides it, but moreso he lies to me about it. I know he has a problem, he does as well but he likes drinking and even being out right now on bond after he got a DUI in Sept 2013 is enough to stop him.
None the less I found my way here, I have decided to stop fighting this crazy fight, I can't help him if he refuses to help himself and I just don't want the aggravation anymore. I plan on attending Al anon meetings beginning this week. I am now on a path to help myself, I am codependent, probably have been my entire life, but I read something on the Al anon website that stated that a loved one can become just as addicted to the alcoholic as the alcoholic is to the alcohol and it hit home... so here I am.
