In the previous post (Changing your drinking: The 10 most important strategies for success) we discussed the important strategies to change drinking. Although aimed mainly at the drinker, they would also be of interest to the family and partners of drinkers. In this companion video we discuss how the family can help and support those strategies for change. What is important is that we view change as a joint effort. Although drinker have to change their drinking behaviour, the family has to help that change through emotional and practical support. Recovery is a family matter!!
