Hi all, My partner is an alcoholic / binge drinker, she is drinking at least 2 bottles of vodka a week plus 2-3 bottles of wine a week. This has been going on for a very long time. She has suffered from alcoholism since I met her, and has never admitted that she has a problem, nor has she seeked any help. We have had countless fights during her drunkenness and it's got that bad now that the only time she wants any physical intimacy is when she is plastered, which is such a turn off for me!! I have lost all respect for her as she seems to blame me for her troubles. I have never touched her I have tried to curb her outrageous spending habits which have put a massive strain on our finances. I don't get drunk, I don't go to the pub, I do all of the kids sports. I don't go drinking at mates place. I have renovated our home and made it as nice as possible. I have told her that she needs to seek help for her drinking and all that does is start a fight. She has no real family support as her sister and daughter both have issues with alcohol too. This is my second long term relationship which is failing. I don't want to lose another house and split up because we have 2 very young children 6 and 8.
It is impossible to have a healthy relationship with an alcoholic. It's time for an ultimatum. She either goes into treatment, or she leaves the home and you will aggressively petition for full custody of your children. They cannot be left to be raised by this woman.
I've lived with addiction I'm my case it was my dd, as a mother I could never fully turn my back on her. If it would have been my DH I would have left, no way would I bring up children around an alcoholic.
Yes, I could take photos of all the empty bottles of vodka What would that prove?
