Q: I was with an active alcoholic for 7 years. I haven’t had contact with him for a year. I loved him so much, but I never felt loved. I never really had his attention. I still feel angry. Is this unusual?
A: Not At All!! Who wouldn’t be angry about someone loving “the bottle” more than they love you!? This is the dilemma for anyone involved with someone who is addicted to anything.
Just don’t let your anger at him stop you from finding someone who can really love you now. When you feel the anger, see his face. And when you meet other men, be sure you know they aren’t him.
