    From where i'm standing

    Lately it has been very very tough on my Macks, i know he is trying his best to cut down....but tonight he was pretty bad after drinking 5 cans which from where i was standing had no affect on him at all.....his mood changed very quickly he became very blunt, angry and aggertated, he asked me how much money we had so i started to count, next thing i know he is looking over my shoulder grabbed the money and went to the shop, he came back with a quarter bottle of whisky ...... my heart dropped like a stone, my eyes filled up quickly and i felt for him, never ever seen him do that before. And he's drinking it straight, quite quickly i feel useless......we have talked (don't argue anymore there's no point) i love him more than life itself, and i don't know what to do for him or if i'm doing enough..........i'm scared i dont want to see him hurting anymore its breaking his heart and he is always worrying about me i dont know why im ok, thanks for everything, you are all very important to me and Macks and have a special place in our hearts....
    Thank you all
    Lisa (aka Mrs Macks) :l xxxxxxxx

    My heart goes out to you Lisa. You are right not to argue with someone who has already been heavily drinking. It's unlikely you would be able to get through.

    For me, my downfall was online political forums. After a couple drinks, reading what the "other side" said made me so upset that it became a festival of new drinks and rabid postings. My spouse, seeing I was on the computer, would simply say "no chance of getting you to bed now, is there..." and go to bed. And my spouse was right as I often stayed up until I was unconscious or banned from all my favorite forums.

    The key is I chose to change. I'm not sure how you can convince anyone to do that.

    Lisa, my heart goes out to you. I dont have any advice to give you. Just that you are probably doing exactly the right thing already. Just being there for him. I dont know the right or wrong way to treat an alcoholic. For me, i would just want to know that someone was there for me when I came to my senses. Prayers are with you both x

    Yep I would say he is definitely scared Lisa, and probably a little bit resentful that he has to give up drinking. I know it makes absolutely no sense to a nondrinker. You are such a loving, patient, wonderful woman and he is so lucky to have you. Just try and do your best until the 27th. I love both of you guys.

    :lHang in there Mr. Macks. Realize what you are giving yourself by giving up the drink, not taking away.

    I think relapse is part of the recovery process.It was, for me, I know that for sure.I know this must be very hard on you and I can tell you it's hard on him...I think that you are an amazing lady and so glad that you are sticking by him.My hubby LOVED me sober.no matter how many times I fell on my face, he always said TOMORROWS ANOTHER DAY and we will try again.I pray that you can be the voice of YES YOU CAN, for him, but you also must care for your own well being.I will keep both of you in my prayers and I know that if I can get sober, so can MACK...

    Just a wee bump in the road, Lisa..........all of us here have had so very, very many.

    I hope and pray that Macks makes it this time. I have tremendous love and respect for you, Lisa. So many people tire of us alkies and turn their backs on us........they consider us lost causes. I do not believe that Macks will ever become a lost cause with such a good woman by his side.

    I wish you both love and strength.
