My Boyfriend Has a Drinking Problem

"My Boyfriend Has a Drinking Problem"

This week's confession comes from our anonymous Confession Booth group in the TrèsSugar Community. Weigh in with your advice below.

I confronted my live-in boyfriend about his drinking problem. He's having a hard time. Yesterday was his first day not drinking. I want to be there for him because it's hard for him. What else could I do to be supportive?

This is also really hard on me because he's so irritable. I explained that he shouldn't view me as the enemy, I'm on his side. He also wants to stop drinking for himself, not only because I said I would leave him. I don't want to bring up therapy unless he's having much more difficulty.


What else can I do? how can I be supportive?
