Did you ever go out with an alcoholic?

I did, twice! It was so sad to watch a man go downhill

  • I was married to one. Worst 10 years of my life. Thank god I finally got the strength to leave & the the knowledge to realize that you can't fix them. The only person who can help an alcoholic is themselves. If they are willing to accept help, fine, but you can't make someone do it.

  • No, but I did help one find an AA meeting and I even picked him up and dropped him off until he made friends to help him. But I also found him a job too.
    I write this because everyone can be helped.

  • no but my sister has been off and on with one for a few years now. it's sad. not even almost dieing of liver failure was enough to make him stop drinking.

  • Once. And when he decided that he was going to get mad at me for something really simple and petty that he shouldn't have gotten mad about and pulled back to hit me, but didn't because someone walked in, I walked away. Haven't looked back since.

  • It is so hard to understand why someone needs to drink that much... what pain in their life they are trying to bury... dated one once could not handle it!

  • My dad was an alcholic so I knew from the beginning I could not be with someone like that.

    Answer by theutilitarian at 1:15 AM on Sep. 22, 2010

  • Yes. He would be passed out before 9pm and pee in the bed alot. I would rather date any kind of man other than an alcoholic. They are nasty and really change personality.
