An Alcoholic Addict?
Alcoholics and addicts are everywhere.
In just the USA there are 50 million family members and
friends affected by an alcoholic's or addict's self abusive behavior.
World wide there are one billion!

Whatever your particular
circumstances, you’ve taken the first step by admitting that there is a
problem. Congratulations! The hardest step in getting help for your
family's alcoholic or addict problem is admitting that the problem
I know. It took me five years to
admit that I had a problem! Five years of increasingly abusive behavior
on the part of my alcoholic addict wife before I was able to get over
my own stubborn belief that I could control her behavior. Five years of
denial that there was a problem.
you find here?
these pages you will find lessons I learned from people who have been
where you are right now. People who were depressed, angry, sad,
frustrated or suicidal because of their loved one’s drinking or
drugging behavior. People who had lost all hope yet have since

there are similarities between each alcoholic or addict family
situation, each also has its own unique characteristics. No one
approach is right for all situations. It is my hope that in these pages
you will find ideas that you can tailor to your particular situation.

search for information and ideas about how to deal with my alcoholic
addict wife, a lot of people shared their lessons with me. I made
myself a promise that one day I would pass on the lessons that I
the information organized?
I started looking for answers I had many questions. As a result I have
organized much of the information provided in a question and answer
format. Information is also organized in more traditional ways, but the
question and answer approach seemed to work best for sharing much of
the information that is gathered here.
So, to get started, choose a topic from
the index on the left, or go to the alcoholic addict family's Master
Question List and pick the question you most want answered first.
remember, if you were not a loving, compassionate person, you would not
be here looking ways to make life better for you and your loved ones.
