For all of us family members affected by drinking.. there is hope. My husband has been without a drink for 7 days. I know how hard it has been for him and the toll that AL has put on our relationship and on him. There were many times I thought it was not possible, but today it is a great day for him and for us and there is hope for the future.
Hang in there, if you can, it can get better. One day at a time.

I am glad for you and your husband. I am the one that drinks in our family. I know how much hurt, anger, frustration, pain etc. I hope the days keep multiplying.

Waiting -

I am so happy.

I have been reading your posts and love what you have shared with us. I need your perspective to keep me strong in the fight.

I am glad your hubby made it this far. He may have a temper, be grumpy, irritable, etc, but better than drinking, right?

Congrats to yuo both.

Thank you for all your posts waiting. I'm the one who's drinking, hubby's patient. I ordered Antabuse and will take it for the rest of my life it that's what it takes. Hubby doesn't act like he cares if I drink, but I want to stop before it causes problems. You really are a woman to be praised. Thank you for your posts, I watch for them. Stay strong.
