terrified and heartbroken

Posted by tabbie on 7 March 2017.

My partner has relapsed after 5 months sober, drinking about a litre of vodka a day and that's only after a week of drinking! hes diabetic not eating, i dread going to work and dread coming home as i don't know what i will find when get home, hes been in rehab, been positive,i just lost I asked him to leave but hes no place to go and cant put him on the street. I love him beyond words when he not drinking hes is the best person, hes never abusive or violent in drink. I just feel so alone i don't know what to do.

Hi Tabbie,
I'm so sorry that you feel you are so alone having to deal with the impact of your partner's drinking. It sounds like you could really do with talking to someone who would understand what you are going through.
I work for a charity called The Icarus Trust that offers support to family and friends of people with addictions. We have experienced trained volunteers called 'Family Friends' who you could talk with if you get in touch.
You can contact us on or visit the website
I hope you can get some help and support for yourself.
