Hello …….Let first start by saying I am NOT a Alcoholic. I say this because I respect your sobriety and addiction. I have been a member of 12 Step National Meetings for approx. 2 years. During this time I have been posting on the Friends and Family of Substance Abuse. Thoughout this time my AH has told me that he was an alcoholic and that he uses no other substance. I didn’t believe him because I have a brother who is a alcoholic and he behaves nothing like my husband. After reading on 12 Step National Meetings I have realized that he actually might be telling the truth. My husband disappears for hours, makes broken promises, visit liquor stores at lease 2 times a day, and has stopped being responsible for anything on so many different levels. He still goes to work but, spends a large portion of his check on alcohol and doesnt spend any time with the kids anymore. He has been involved in numerous extramaritial affairs and the woman usually work with him but have part time jobs as escorts and strippers. I guess what i’m trying to ask is can it JUSt be ALCOHOL that causes his disappearing acts, sweating, crossed eyes, and disregard for life????? I see my brother and I see totally different actions and he has been an alcoholic for 20 years. I hope that no one gets offended by my question acholism is a disease and I am praying for you all.
