I am writing today to tell you how alcohol destroyed my relationship with my husband. When we first got married, my life was controlled by alcohol. It was all that mattered. Alcohol was more important then my husband and my marriage. It just made things worse. It came to the point that we almost got a divorce. Know I am in treatment, and looking towards a clean and sober life. Now I am the wife that I was supposed to be. A clean and sober wife, who doesn’t have to take any drugs or alcohol to live.
Furthermore, when I had my daughter I couldn’t handle it. I had post-partum depression and turned to alcohol as a way of escaping. But that wasn’t the solution. It just made things worse. I am writing to tell you not to drink because it doesn’t solve anything and it isn’t the answer to your problems. I know now that being clean and sober that I can get through anything. It’s hard to be a good mother when you are drunk. There is so much time taken away when you could be bonding with your child.
