I think I made the decision of attending this group too late. I just wanted the relationship to end. Now, we are separated, I could not take it anymore. Sunshine March 15, 2019 at 12:26 pm I have to change my approach to my alcoholic spouse before the anger and resentment kills me. He is my love, my heart. I want what is best for BOTH of us. So, I have to make myself a priority and be the best version of myself in order to be the best spouse and support person for him when and if the time comes for him to need it to get treatment, or AA or just to get through the day after a bad night. Instead of being the colossal bad person casting blame and judgment. I want to be the one to say, ” This was YOUR choice, not mine, let me know when you will be ready to …..” calmly, firmly and confidently. Letting him know that the drinking is something I am no longer going to have a hissy fit about. I can only control my actions. I am hoping that Al-Anon will help, from what I learned at my first meeting, I am optimistic. Anonymous December 3, 2018 at 12:02 pm I separated from alcholic 2 years ago and recently judge finaly granted my divorce for safety of me and my son been in therapy and Church and need to break through some things that werent going away, the haunting thoughts and obsessing on what if’s was very confusing to me I thought it would go away by now….I was told and guided to Al-Anon as Death or Divorce doesnt fix the aftermath me and my son are left with. I am excited and scared but I am searching. Patti November 24, 2018 at 9:35 am My therapist suggest I try Alanon. I am scared.. Kay R.
