My partner is causing problems with her drinking. She agreed to seek help and today she had a call from a “support charity”
They have said they can’t help her as she doesn’t
Need to drink
Have withdrawal symptoms
And has stoped drinking( for two weeks).
They’ve also suggested couples counselling ( I totally agree with this).
They have also offered her women’s aid number to her, to get help with me “controlling her”.
Am I wrong in finding this all a bit odd?
When she has been drinking I’ve been abused and assaulted. I’ve begged her to address her drinking and even had to involve the police a few weeks ago.
The controlling part comes from me saying if the drinking continues then I will walk away. She has tried to come up with excuses to drink” I can’t visit this friend or tht friend and not drink” as well as “it’s a birthday and I want to drink”.
Actually doubting myself now.
