Are you living with an alcoholic? Has your alcoholic spouse ever physically abused you or your kids?
Here is a shocking question posted by a spouse of an abusive alcoholic that I saw on an internet blog called ‘How Do I Get My Daughter Off Drugs?” The post is called “he-hits-my-daughter-and-has-choked-her-he-is-in-jail-now”
She writes, “…he is an alcoholic but will not admit it they have his bond set at 20,000.00 cash they got him for 1st degree assault against a minor she is 16 this is the 2nd time he has been in jail once for hitting her with a belt and once for choking her.”
Here are several responses from people who read about her alcoholic husband:
“What can you do?”…are you joking?!? I can think of a NUMBER of things you could do.
Who gives a fat sh!t if he ADMITS it?!? Get your daughter and yourself as far away (and as fast as you can) from this loser before he kills one (or both) of you. Why would you stay after the first time? OMG, people never cease to amaze me…what a damn shame.
Be a mother and protect your daughter, thats what you do!!!!
I can’t believe you are even asking this question. If you take him back, then find somewhere else for her to live. See how it feels after he hits you the first time.
You’re a terrible mother. Protect her or someone’s going to report your endangered daughter and you’re going to lose her.
You are NO BETTER than him. He abuses her and you let him.
I quoted these to help any mom married to an alcoholic spouse WAKE UP TO REALITY!
DO NOT ALLOW YOUR KIDS TO BE EXPOSED TO PHYSICAL ABUSE FROM AN ALCOHOLIC PARENT! As a parent we are responsible to keep our children safe. If you or your kids are a victim of abuse in your alcoholic family, you should; call the police, file charges, leave your alcoholic husband ( your physical safety must come first), and live or stay where you are your childen will be safe.
As this post illustrates, patterns are repeated. Violence is never acceptable. If your alcoholic husband is verbally abusive, going to Al-anon or getting your own therapy can help you learn to set appropriate boundaries which will stop that behavior. Your kids never asked to be part of an alcoholic family. Make the right choices for their future and yours.
