In this video Lou talks about LOVE and setting boundaries. In Bottled Up we encourage a positive approach to the drinking situation – this is probably most represented in our tools, especially LOVE.
There is, however, more scope than we realised for misunderstanding, that we are promoting a “grin and bear it” attitude to the drinker. We are absolutely not!
While we have great compassion for the drinker, have a whole area of the website for them and also help them on 1 to 1 basis. We are not apologists for drinkers nor do we condone any abuse, physical and/or mental, that they perpetrate while drunk!
We do promote healthy boundaries and self-care for the family.
