Posted by Illustroanimus on 17 August 2017.

Hi this is my first time here, my wife is now regularly consuming 2 bottles of wine a day to try and block out things from the past, and its now, or really been a long time brewing a problem.  She knows it's an issue but she is still in denial. I love her dearly but seeing her sink into alcoholism is destroying me. I don't know what to do or how to help her. If I don't bring wine home she turns into a monster, but she's not a monster. She is so loving but this addiction is destroying her and us and the family. I just don't know what to do....
