Hi im a 20 yr old mum of two and have been with my partner for 5 years, we have been through a lot of ups and downs in the 5 yrs. My partner is an alcoholic and ex drug user, i tell him that i dont want him to drink because he gets violent and doesnt know when to stop drinking. He has promised me that he isnt going to drink again but i know he always will! i dont want to stress about whether or not he is ging to do it again. im not sure what i should do.
Medicine for detoxification I think you should always advise your partner detoxification.You take care your partner more than . If can, you give your partner take detoxification medication as directed by your doctor.

Hello Welcome to the site. Im Vickie, Mummy to a two year old boy. Firstly hon, without trying to patronise you, please get some help. Speak to your doctor and health visitor and explain exactly the situation. Your partner needs professional help as I am sure you know, but for the sake of yourself and family too. I am no expert in these situations, but I do know there is help out there, especially if there is violence involved. Please speak to your doctor and they will put you in contact with people who can help. Sending you hugs xxx
Hi Kristie,I'm Rach mam to Tomos 3,and Jc 20mths. x Think your partner needs help,I appreciate that is easy to tell someone or ask them to get help,but as Vickie said,if violence is involved,he needs it mate,sooner rather than later. I would support him 100% it's not easy dealing with demons,offer support,help as much as you can,if you get nowt in return.....you deserve better. Sorry to be blunt,I hope you both get through this together x x

Hiya Kristie & welcome
I'm Louise, mommy to 3 boys (5, 2.5 & 1)..... I'm sorry to hear your predicament. It must be an awful situation to be in. On the 1 hand you love him but you cannot relax for fear of when he is going to drink again. It must be so frightening having the kids around though & never knowing if he may turn violent or not. I would urge you to get some help. Maybe from a doctor or Health Visitor.
Good luck hun, I hope everything works out for you xxx
