My Alcoholic, My Love:

My Love and Loss of an Alcoholic Husband

To save yourself and your family from the destruction the alcoholic brings to your life, you must turn away and learn how to take care of yourself and your loved ones. This is not easy. Most of us have been raised to love and care for the people in our lives. To break this tradition is heart wrenching and nearly impossible. Few can do it alone and the author found the Al-Anon organization of tremendous help. Here are the author’s struggles as she battled to find her way to a new satisfying life for her and her children.



“I will not go down the rabbit hole with you.”

After hours of ugly attacks by my husband on me.


“I am delighted I chose to live where I can see that somewhere else in the world, life if going on.”

Separating from my husband and desperately alone in my apartment, with a busy highway running right outside.


“I am impaled by my alcoholic and must move on.”

I realized I could not live with him but had to move to another city where he could not be in my life easily.
