THE PAIN AND JOY OF AN ALCOHOLIC FAMILY Lorene Weaver
Alcoholism affects the entire family with each person experiencing his/her own private hell and giving all of us who have grown up in such families a common bond. Usually generational, behaviors are handed on down until someone is ready to break the mold. That person becomes an overcomer.
The old saying â€œlove is blindâ€ is really true in my case. I felt Hank drank while we were dating because he was lonely and things would change after we were married. I also felt he only drank when we went out to different functions and not at home. It was never anything we did together. Being allergic to alcohol, I never joined in his drinking.
Hank was very good at talking. I knew he could talk me in circles. He would be late and it was my fault! I actually apologized! Nuts! It didnâ€™t matter at the time. I was in love and he was someone I felt needed me to take care of him. I still remember the exact moment that thought came to me. I would be able to fill that loneliness he was experiencing and then he wouldnâ€™t need to drink and I would be happy doing something for someone.
