How Many Alcoholics Are You Aware of in Your Life?
I have had 4 meaningful relationships in my life (sounds a lot but over 50 years) and 3 of those were with alcoholics, one abusive and two just soppy.
This meant constant strife, lack of money and never feeling truly happy or settled.
The two men in my worklife I would label as alcoholics but they may just be borderline although one has had a triple bypass and tells his doc he hardly touches alcohol.
I don't know any female alcoholics but of course they exist too, in my line of work with kids in care, many parents of both genders are alcoholics or drug addicts.
I have never understood why/how my partners could drink so much that they then needed two days feeling ill to recover and couldn't even remember the good time they supposedly had getting in that state.
Is it just me or do others wonder at the idiocy of drinking too much?
