Alcoholism and the Agony of the Long Goodbye

Reading now: 311

I met my ex-husband Gary and the father of my 17-year-old son, in 1989. My ex-husband was an incurable alcoholic. And though I knew he drank when we met, the extent of his addiction to alcohol was not clear to me until a short time later.

When I did realize it, I attempted to end the relationship. He promised me as he wept that I was the most important thing in the world to him and he would stop drinking.

He didn’t stop. Several months passed and again I decided to end the relationship and again he swore he would stop drinking.
