Promote Change In this part of the cycle you will start to promote change. The direct goal of the change is NOT to get him/her to stop drinking, or even to cut down their drinking. However, it is entirely possible that these may be the indirect effects of your actions.
The focus of your change is to make your home and your life safer and more comfortable for your family and yourself. It is not to wait for or on the drinker to change. Some of these changes may mean setting boundaries and negotiating limits. However, we will discuss these issues in much more detail at the appropriate point in the website.
