JC:Kay, thanks for sending in your story. I think it’s wonderful that your husband will go to the gym with you and to hear it is actually helping with his alcoholism. He is probably going to drop a few pounds as he continues to work out and not drink as much.

Here’s what’s beginning to look like a silver lining in the dark cloud! I am married to a functional alcoholic or shall I say till a fortnight ago. Recently I got a bright idea of gifting him with a whole years gym (paid extra for a special personal trainer) spa and a massage package. It cost me an arm and a leg, and this was also a shot in the dark, as I was not really sure if he would ever bother going. Thankfully, he felt pressured and came along. Now here’s the good news …his drinking has come down by 50% and my fingers are crossed. By he time he gets home he is physically exhausted and cannot wait to hit the bed. It is one day at a time – let us hope the bliss continues. I also had a consultation with his doctor as he is a heart patient as well as grossly over weight and just turned 60! I could never ever convince him to go to a rehab or cut down on his binge drinking, but this gym business seems to be working at the moment.
