The holidays can be a scary time when your partner’s an addict or alcoholic. Instead of visions of sugar plums, you may be having nightmares of:
- parties with alcohol
- broken promises
- being embarrassed by your partner
- ruined holidays of the past
- receiving gifts of alcohol
- strained family relationships
- stress over finances, long to-do lists
The most important thing to remember this year is that you have choices and don’t have to let your partner’s addiction ruin another holiday. I know it’s not easy, but you can choose to do something different this year. I put together my 4 best strategies for coping with an addicted partner in an article I wrote for The Good Men Project. Please read the full article over on The Good Men Project.
Have a safe and happy holiday season!
