Feel like I've failed

Posted by Pollyann on 27 August 2017.

Hi my partner went through a detox programme after being with him for a year (drinking ) .
I've stayed with him and I don't know why but he did the detox and came out after a 10day hospital stay he was given tablets to take everyday and signed off,
3months after the detox we went away for a week and it was very hard as I didn't trust he wouldn't drink but as far as I know he didn't .
We came back and spent another week together before I had to return home by mid week things got bad and one excuse and he had a drink .
I came home and had three weeks of on off we just couldn't get on and he drunk for two weeks only stopping now after having a fall.
He has stopped again but I just don't know what to do for the best should I support and if so by doing what or leave him he isn't nasty or anything like that x

Hi Pollyann,
It sounds like you might like to talk with someone who would understand what you are going through with your partner's drinking. 
I work for a charity called The Icarus Trust. We provide support for people who are dealing with a loved one's addiction. You could talk with one of our experienced volunteers which might help you to decide what to do next.
You can contact us on or visit the website
Good luck.
