These two videos were prompted by comments and questions from you as members. When we can, we try to address the issues you raise. Apart from anything else it means that we don’t need to wrack our brains for topics and we can be , reasonably, sure that we are talking about something that affects you.
In the first video we talk about scapegoating and blaming – that is when the drinker decides that it is all the fault of the family and/or partner. Unfortunately this is all too common.
In the second video we talk about an issue that is raised often – childhood issues. Many drinkers will cite childhood incidents, traumas or upbringing as the reason for their drinking. This has led many family members to question whether we should be addressing these issues before we deal with the alcohol. Find out our views on this by watching the video and have your say in the comments below.
