I need some solid straight-forward advice on how to help a long time alcoholic cage the devil!
My fiance of three years left me for a stripper this summer because she would drink with him when I wouldn't. He has since broken up with her because he realized how his addiction ruined his life, namely because he no longer has me. Now he wants to beat his alcoholism and straighten out his life. Alcoholics Anonymous has not been helpful because the chapters he has visited are full of people who drink before and after meetings, plus they brag about the bad things they do when in an alcoholic state.
Although there is no rebuilding our relationship now that I have found a more wonderful man who treats me with love and respect, I do want to be helpful to my ex as he has nobody else left on his side. What things work(ed) for you?
