Addiction by half of a couple can be devastating to the relationship.  How can you work together to beat the illness?

Cupid’s Advice:

Many things in this world draw even the strongest willed people into a less than desirable situation.  When you’re with someone, they too, are affected by your condition.  Here are some ways you and your partner can reduce or eliminate your temptation together:

1. Stay away from your weakness: If you have a taste for alcohol, don’t work in a place where you have easy access.  Talk with your lover to find other jobs you can perform well in.

2. Get help: Acknowledging the problem is a great first step to getting your life back on track.  Start small by attending an addiction group meeting, and work your way up.  Ask your mate to attend for moral support.

3. Nobody is perfect: The fact that addiction is more common and openly spoken about these days makes it more important to accept your imperfections.  If you’re the sober one, stand by your partner throughout their ordeal for a better chance at success.
