Here are another two videos in the Bottled Wisdom series, short videos which give a bite sized intro to aspects of the program. In this post we address two issues Talking to a drunk and Lying and drinking. We have addressed these issue elsewhere in more detail, however the goal of these videos in to give the flavour of our approach. The program addresses these topics in much more detail and depth. We highly recommend that you look at those resources for a more rounded picture.
The first of the videos looks at communication with the drinker when they are intoxicated,
Don’t pour petrol on a fire!! If you confront a drinker when he is drinking it usually makes things much worse.
The second video addresses an issue that seems to anger most (if not all) of you – Lying and drinking.
Lying and drinking usually go hand in hand. Your partner may be very truthful in all other areas. Similarly, if your trust is broken in one area, try not to let the mistrust contaminate all other areas. Don’t give the drink that much power!
