Living under the same roof as someone who is battling alcoholism is certainly no walk in the park. Because alcohol addiction completely hijacks every aspect of a person’s life, you likely feel as if you have been living with a complete stranger for quite some time. The person you used to know and love has vacated the premises, and you are stuck sharing space with an angry, selfish and self-destructive imposter.

It’s hard. It’s hard, and over time it will wear on you. The good news is, you don’t have to sit back and patiently wait for your friend or family member to come around.
