It can be hard having a loved one who is an alcoholic. Those
who do often struggle with these issues:
- Worrying about how much someone drinks
- Having money problems because of someone else’s drinking
- Telling lies to cover up for someone else’s drinking
- Feeling that the drinker loved you, he or she would stop drinking to please you
- Blaming the drinker’s behavior on his or her companions
- Having plans frequently upset or canceled or meals delayed because of the drinker
- Making threats, such as, "If you don’t stop drinking, I’ll leave you."
- Secretly try to smell the drinker’s breath
- Fear of confronting someone for fear it will set off a drinking bout
