My partner's mother is an alcoholic, been to rehab 3 times, I live with it.
I don't make excuses, some of us live with it and understand.
you see the issue with people like you is that you jump to conclusions that people like me have never 'lived with it'
i've seen a man, who put a bottle or his kids in front of him would opt for the bottle every time. who never gave a shit about his wife or any other human being for that matter. there comes a time when any modicum of sympathy is driven out of you. i understand very well, i have obviously just came to different conclusions than you have.
