You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.I happened across this website several years ago and it was amazing how many of the issues discussed matched my life at the time.Question: I cannot bear my wife’s alcoholism any longer. I’m continually moved by the vivid descriptions of the carnage that addiction causes, and the impossible “you choose, you lose” dilemmas faced by exhausted, isolated partners.
However, I was never brave enough to post anything even though I did learn things that helped (sometimes).
My wife (was) an alcoholic for the past ~12 years, since 2001.
Whatever the reason, some fans are dissatisfied and they won't be content to complain about it. In short, an AU with an agenda rather than as an intellectual exercise.
The motivations for writing these can vary greatly, along with the perceived justification — they may want to "correct" something that went just fine, or want to offer an alternative to something incredibly stupid.
But, I also notice that many describe their own addiction of sorts – to the partner.
