I walked away from love because of alcohol

I always believe things happen in your life for a reason and met a man who I think could be the second half of my life. I’m from Texas, my son lives there, my friends and my daughter and her husband are moving back to Texas to raise their first child. Here I am in Utah with my sister and her family, because she convinced me to move here after our Mom passed and being her caregiver. This doesn’t feel like home to me and then I meet Joe. Okay maybe HE is the reason I’m meant to be in Utah? He is kind, caring, very thoughtful, but the first thing I notice, is how much he drinks EVERY-NIGHT. I don’t EVER drink alone and only with friends/family. My parents didn’t drink much growing up and neither did I in my 25 years marriage. I think, am I a prude? Why does he drink so much? 8-10 beers, plus whiskey in between. I couldn’t keep up with him! I finally said I think we should be friends because your drinking is too much for me. He was devastated and cried. I thought ok, he’s had some rough patches, maybe it was me and give him another chance, so I did, but the drinking continued. I was definitely paying more attention now and when I’d drink my 3 beers, I could here him taking swigs from whiskey bottle in freezer, out of my sight. Again, I said please stop drinking too much. He said he would while driving in the car. No sooner when we arrived back to his place, could I hear him in the freezer again and again, and again, the same night I said please stop.
Now I’m really mad because I feel like silently he just said screw you to my face and snuck behind my back. Now after 5 months I made the decision to confront him about his drinking and tell him he needs rehab. He doesn’t deny he has a drinking problem, but no desire to fix it and I said ok, then I can only offer friendship between us. He said ok and I’m sorry. Didn’t take away the pain from the knife he just drove in my heart because he just chose alcohol over ME! Now I’m broken hearted and don’t understand why he won’t just stop! We are both miserable and crying, but he won’t stop! I’ve sat over last month or so trying to figure out the whys and can’t...until I stumbled on THIS podcast!!!!! Listening to these stories has helped me understand the addiction so much more than I could’ve imagined. I hear some of the stories and say, yep, he did this and yep he did that and started to make sense. I can’t help him and he either has to hit rock bottom or decide on his own and definitely can’t be from ME telling him to, he has to want to get help. After my long story, I can say it has truly helped me understand addiction, some of the whys, but most of all, he wasn’t meant to be the second love of my life, because the alcohol is number one and always will be.
Thank you for helping me understand!!!!

Growing compassion

Stumbled upon this podcast after discovering that a dear coworker was an addict. This podcast was comforting to me and helped me to try and understand addiction and how someone could choose their vice over their job, family, etc... I really appreciate the honesty from the hosts and guests and can’t help but feel compassion for those who have overcome great obstacles in their lives. Much love.

Raw, awesome, helpful

The hosts, and guests are so open and thoughtful. Dr Matt does such a great job of getting all the essential information and Casey brings just enough humor to keep it light enough to enjoy. Both Casey and Dr. Matt have hearts of gold with endless compassion.
