    Relationships & recovery - Impacts on romantic relationships.

    Thu Feb 13, 2020 5:12 pm

    Problematic drinking or drug use by yourself or your partner can impact your relationship in a number of ways. As can the journey of change. Sometimes this is positive, or negative, and sometimes a mixture of both.

    How has it impacted on your romantic relationships?
    Do you perhaps have something to share that might help others - a story, some tips, or just something that's on your mind? We'd love to hear from you.

    Hey guys
    New to all this. Just had a episode on the weekend, where I couldn’t stop my drinking and get home on the agreed time that was set by my ex-partner and I. Which blow up in a massive fight in the morning and me getting kick out and driving 5hrs across the state while I was still effected by alcohol. I never drink drive I’m always totally against it. Now after reflection on it all I realised I need help. I hope I’m in the right spot. I don’t drink that often but when I do I usually cant stop.
