  • Alcoholic

    Has anyone tried dating or been in a relationship with an alcoholic? Like someone who can no longer control their use of alcohol and drinking almost everyday.

  • #2
    Nope, haven't meet anyone like this although I've been in a relationship with guys who drink but not like an alcohol addict.

      shizzlygizzly Good for you then. But what will you do if you have a partner that is an alcohol addict?

  • #3
    There aren't many alcoholic women than men so the chances that a woman have encountered this experience is higher than men. As for me, I haven't meet a girl like this yet.

      Yeah and if I'm not mistaken I read it somewhere that women tend to receive greater risk with alcohol abuse than men.

    I have dated a guy who is also into alcohol but we never get to be in an exclusive relationship.

      anxiousme Yeah, because they flirted with a guy for me, and they were drunk that time.

    One of my closest relative is struggling with alcohol, he doesn't have a wife nor kids and currently in treatment for his addiction. I witnessed him before and it is crazy to think or imagine being in a relationship with someone like that.

      Did he become an alcoholic right after your break up or a little later?

      He is your ex already but how did you know that he is now an alcoholic? Did you maintain contact with him even after your relationship?

      FieryCloudz25 I don't know if it was after our break up because I don't have any communications with him. brooksbrioche nope, I only heard about it almost a year after the break up from a mutual friend.

    I once got into a blind date and he said that he got a problems with alcohol but surprisingly he is very charming and respectful during our date. We had a drink but he never went into like drinking like there's no tomorrow and he actually drive me home. I totally admire him for that and so I thanked him for giving me a wonderful date.

      He is such a nice gentleman. I think you also play a vital role in your date. The fact that he shared that side to you means that he feels comfort and connection and he respect you for that.

    I don't know if he is in the "total addict" level but one of my ex is really into alcohol. He would get drunk almost every week especially on weekends and we mostly caught into fight because of it. I honestly thought he would change because in the middle of our argument or in confrontation he would say that he will not do it again or he will be more mindful next time not to drink too much, but his behavior didn't change.

      Did you advice him to reach out for a professional help?

      morningglory yes, I told him that and he got pissed telling me that I am exaggerating things and that there is nothing wrong with him and his drinking behavior is totally normal for an adult.

      Maybe, that is why she's asking us here or maybe it's someone close to her.

      xXtinaGelo right but its kinda weird, she should have specifically ask what she want to know aside from asking if we met this type of person.

      Is that the reason that your relationship ended? Or ended because other things?

      babycakez23 half a year. flabbybecrux yes, this is the main reason. We are fighting all the time, it was so stressful and he got more time for alcohol than me.

  • #11
    No, I haven't had any alcoholic exes but I know some people who are currently walking in that path.

      I have one, but not with a romantic relationship. He is my friend and currently struggling with it but he's now under therapy, it takes a while before he agreed for a professional help but all of us (his circle of friends) are really glad he finally did. His main reason why he doesn't want one before was because he did not know it was already too much.

        Sometimes, they can't recognize the problems because they thought it was still normal not knowing they were already drowning in it.

      If our answer is yes, then what are the things that you wish to know? The experience, struggles or what specifically? Trystingbish

      I agree with skuzzvibe on this one, you should have stated what else you wan't to know or as to why are you interested in this topic. If you only want to know if I've been in a relationship with someone with alcohol problem, then my answer is yes.

        I think she is interested in the experience with being in a relationship with an alcoholic.

        flabbybecrux if she's interested in it, then she should've precisely stated it at her post. She just ask if someone dated an alcoholic and then explained what alcoholic is, lmao.

        PearBear I know lol. It was kinda funny because she doesn't have to explain to us the meaning because we obviously know it.

      I haven't dated anyone who has problem like this yet, but who knows? maybe in the future.

        Just date? then I'm fine with it. I don't see any reason why I would reject him for a date just because he's alcoholic.

        guana How about you? If ever a guy that has this kind issue and asks you for a date, are gonna date with him? Cause for me, there's nothing wrong to have a date with that kind of person. It's just a date tho.
