Not only is my dad an alchoholic but so is my ex-husband and present husband. I have so much to work on with myself because of this I don't know where to start. Would Adult Children Of Alcoholics or Codependent's Anonymous be the better place to go? I have trouble with self esteem and controlling issues, plus I don't stand up for myself when I should.

Are You Troubled by Someone's Drinking? 
Al-Anon Is for You!

Millions of people are affected by the excessive drinking of someone close. The following questions are designed to help you decide whether or not you need Al-Anon:

  • Do you worry about how much someone else drinks?
  • Do you have money problems because of someone else's drinking?
  • Do you tell lies to cover up for someone else's drinking?
  • Do you feel that if the drinker cared about you, he or she would stop drinking to please you?
  • Do you blame the drinker's behavior on his or her companions?
  • Are plans frequently upset or canceled or meals delayed because of the drinker?
  • Do you make threats, such as, "If you don't stop drinking, I'll leave you"?
  • Do you secretly try to smell the drinker's breath?
  • Are you afraid to upset someone for fear it will set off a drinking bout?
  • Have you been hurt or embarrassed by a drinker's behavior?
  • Are holidays and gatherings spoiled because of drinking?
  • Have you considered calling the police for help in fear of abuse?
  • Do you search for hidden alcohol?
  • Do you ever ride in a car with a driver who has been drinking?
  • Have you refused social invitations out of fear or anxiety?
  • Do you feel like a failure because you can't control the drinking?
  • Do you think that if the drinker stopped drinking, your other problems would be solved?
  • Do you ever threaten to hurt yourself to scare the drinker?
  • Do you feel angry, confused, or depressed most of the time?
  • Do you feel there is no one who understands your problems?

If you have answered "Yes" to any of these questions, Al-Anon or Alateen may help you. To contact Al-Anon/Alateen in your community

Don't feel disgraced of yourself, since its not your fault that most of the people in your life are alcoholics, try to deal with your current situation, take your present hubby to good rehab center, before its too late. For rehabilitation & sobriety procedures, kindly visit this site orangecountydetox.com for better understanding of your problem. Also don't treat this problem as a life long disease it can be cured with trust & faith towards the detoxification program, to be carried out by experienced medical practitioners.

Hello,

 

I feel sorry about your situation, but I think you can still help yourself by doing two things. Either be the constant company to your husband and encourage him to take a new turn in life or present a few reliable stories with evidence regarding how alcoholism or drinking affects one's way of life. On the other hand, you can also take him to a rehab center or an expert counsellor who can demotivate him. Hope this helps.

Such a circumstance brings with it various intricacies.
Since the issue is not life debilitating, you can't surge into the crisis room.
