Alcoholic dating another alcoholic

However, it is impossible to continue drinking heavily for a long period of time without suffering the physical and psychological consequences of alcoholism, such as liver disease, heart disease, neurological damage, cancer, or depression.

Many of the spouses, significant others, parents, and children of high-functioning alcoholics fall into the trap of codependency, protecting the alcoholic from the consequences of the disease.

Functional alcoholics are often in deep denial about their problem.

After all, they have managed to maintain the appearance of success in spite of their addiction.

There are at least two categories of people involved in alcoholism: functioning alcoholics (high functioning alcoholics) and individuals who struggle with living a normal life as a result of their alcoholism.

If you’re the loved one of someone in either group, it’s important that you know how to deal with an alcoholic effectively, with consideration to their symptoms and lifestyle, if you want to help them get well.

Whether you have an alcoholic husband, wife or other loved one, you may be wondering how to help.

An alcoholic can benefit from having an at-home support system before, during and after any form of treatment for their addiction.

Their professional status or personal success can make it hard to approach them about having a “problem” with alcohol.

There’s another type of alcoholic, the high-functioning alcoholic.

High-functioning alcoholics often seem to have everything going for them.

If you are involved with a functional alcoholic, you already know how painful it is to live with this disease.

By getting help for yourself and your loved one, you may be able to avoid further consequences of alcoholism and build a healthier future for your family.
