Just learning that I can do some things to help myself. Spouse gets short when he drinks, and makes atmosphere tense. Do you have advice? I already started marrage counseling.

Al-Anon you will be glad you did it. It takes at least six meetings before you realize that you can have a life even with an alcholic. I admire your strenght I wasn't able to do it, but then there was a slew of other problems which is often the case. It has helped me see the ways I needed to work on myself it isn't about making the drinker quit drinking it is about you have a life..Good luck

My ex husband is an alcoholic. He was a different person when drunk. Therefore I was a different person as well. I could not cope in this relationship. The good times were good but the bad times were really bad. I left. That relationship was over 10 years ago. He still drinks from time to time. He also still is not responsible as he could have been. He has never really changed too much through the years. If I could go back, I would do things differently. I would have stopped worrying about him, whether or not he would change. I would have focused on me a lot more. But it has taken me years to learn this one. I encourage you to just keep learning and growing as person for yourself. Maybe get individual counseling so that your needs are heard.
