Alcoholics Anonymous

I took Jane to Alcoholics Anonymous tonight. It was a new years resolution that she made after we had a discussion. I had thought that she wasn't committed enough in her desire to control her drinking.

It is also fair to say that I had felt that I had given up helping her. But if I was to make my life better it would pay me to help her. We would both be winners if I stepped in and did my bit.

Many years ago I helped a lot but I am now worn down by her alcoholism and felt that it was pretty much a lost cause.

You can't give up though. There are a number of AA venues near where we live so it was no difficult getting to a meeting.

I am also (once again) supervising her taking Antabuse every morning. We are therefore tackling the problem. These are pretty much the only tools that we have to control the problem.

I'd like to hear the experiences of both alcoholics and the victims of alcoholics, please.
