How Was Your Relationship Before You Started Abusing Alcohol?

The million dollar question is:

How was your relationship before you started drinking and abusing alcohol? I can tell you from experience that alcohol addiction and relationship DO NOT go hand and hand by any means!

Can you remember when you first met the love of your life and were inseparable? Do you remember that feeling that came over you when you saw the love of your life for the first time?

This new person in your life meant everything to you, and you would go to the end of the Earth to have him/her forever in your life. Everything you did and said to each other was purely true, and you tingled from head to toe when you embraced each other.

You both simply had clean fun and looked forward to seeing each other each day until the day you are married.

Than Alcohol Came in Your Lives

One day a love for alcohol came into your lives, and for some reason, alcohol was then more important than the love of your life.

How did this happen? I am now loving alcohol more than the love of my life. I can't control how much I drink and I am loving the feeling alcohol is giving me.

What happened to the tingling in my body I used to have when I embraced my love? Now the only tingle I have is when I get that buzz and being drunk from the alcohol I drink.

Something has disappeared in my relationship, but I can't pinpoint it, although my love has called the right answer to me many times lately. I will not listen and will not agree that I have a drinking problem as my love of my life has told me many times.

Where did that lust go when I touch my love? I feel more love when I have a alcoholic drink in my hand! This is so sad, that I am losing my love over a liquid what will in the future ruin my relationship and the love we have, or had for each other.

So What Do You Do to Heal the Wounds from Your Addiction?

What can be done to gain your trust and love for each other again? How can that feeling come back in your lives like the first time you met each other and the sparks flew? How can you have that feeling of the chills running through your bodies once more when you touch each other?

THE ANSWER TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP PROBLEMS LIES IN YOUR OWN HANDS!

The question is, "what and who do you love more? What or who will give you unconditional love for the rest of your life?

Do you think alcohol can give you what the love of your life can give to you? If so, please leave a comment because I would love to hear it!

The only thing I can see to save a relationship when it has been ruined by an alcohol addiction is, "SIMPLY STOP DRINKING AND ABUSING ALCOHOL!"


Get back to that feeling you had years ago when you found the love of your life. Embrace him/her like it was the first time you touched each other.

I BET YOU THAT FEELING THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE, LIKE IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING, WILL FEEL MUCH BETTER THAN FEELING THAT ALCOHOLIC DRINK IN YOUR HAND!

GET WITH IT MY FRIENDS - SAVE YOUR RELATIONSHIPS- YOUR RELATIONSHIP CAN BE A LIFETIME, BUT ALCOHOLISM AND ABUSING ALCOHOL CAN CUT YOUR LIFE SHORT REAL FAST!

AT LEAST TAKE THE TIME OUT TO THINK ABOUT IT REAL HARD, AND THEN MAKE YOUR DECISION. WHAT IS WORTH MORE IN YOUR LIFE?

Awesome & thought provoking hub. this is one of your best in the series. I'm interested in reading your book, "my life with alcohol addiction." You're an inspiration for those who suffer from substance addiction. Congratulations on your 32nd wedding anniversary.
