  • I think you need to set some boundaries and quickly.

    I would stop enabling the BF immediately. MOVE OUT. He is not going to change unless he hits rock bottom and frankly by enabling him you are allowing him to thrive rather than hit his bottom.

    You need to set clear and specific boundaries for your daughter. When she is and is not allowed to come over and make sure the boundary is something you can realistically deal with. Hold to it and don't budge until that bad habit has been broken.

    And finally make sure you schedule in YOU time. Actually put it in your calendar. If someone wants you to do something during that time you can say, "Sorry I have an appointment then."

  • Take a deep breath and take baby steps. Don't look at the whole picture, just a little piece of it.

  • I agree with the other answers. I just wanted to throw out there that deep breathing, yoga, and other exercises can help with your stress levels as well.

  • Either the BF gives up alcohol or you walk ~ that is the end result ...
