ebethany.....
Hi, I would like to let you know that you can attend alanon meetings online. You will find many others who understand what you are going through.
All you need to do is type in Alanon/online meetings and you can find one...Try..this and i know you will find chatrooms where you can share your concerns with others.
Hope this helps, if you get stuck, I can suggest some I know of, let me know.
Love in recovery, Peace

ebethany....
I forgot to let you know that Alanon as well as AA are fully anonymous, what you hear and who you see there, remains there. You would be very suprised to see some folks that you would other wise never think have your very same struggles...You can and will find so much comfort from meetings, and the hugs are nice too.
Just wanted to let you know..........
Love in recovery, Peace

thanks again peace...
having moved from a larger city where i knew a few friends who attended aa
and from what they told me... not so anonymous. then again not much was in that place. amazing how quickly people knew your business.
so i am a bit skeptical about it in a town of less than 20,000
and as i mentioned a much more conservative community.

Bethany - I am in the same situ. I find myself being hyper-vigilant when it comes to his social drinking. I am always looking for that sign that it's going to turn into something more serious. Just kinda second nature after being married to a functional alcoholic for 25 years.

A simple screening test called the CAGE questionnaire is a good indicator that you're moving from low risk drinking to problem drinking. The questions on this test are: Have you ever felt the need to Cut down on your drinking? Have people ever Annoyed you by criticism of your drinking? Have you ever feltGuilty about your drinking? Have you ever taken a morning Eye-opener drink to steady your nerves or get rid of a hangover?

A care and love will help you with recovery from this pain and addiction of alcohol. You can try in some rehabilitation centers which work for people like you. Don’t get worried you are fine and will recover soon.

You should talk to the person about the situation so that some solution could come because avoiding it will make the situation worse and honestly talking to him would be the best.
