Hi all, I just wanted to get some opinions on this popular quote. I am curious as to how many of you drink with your addicted loved one, simply because you feel that they will do it anyway, so you may as well join them. I have seen many people do this and I feel that it is obviously very unhealthy to do. I feel that it gives the addicted person another "excuse" as to why they "can't" quit. I actually tried this approach years ago with my alcoholic husband. I figured if he wanted to drink all the time, I could do it with him sometimes to at least do something together. I did this for a bit until I discovered how bad it was when I was a member of another forum geared towards alcoholism and addiction and how it affects loved ones. So, have you done this or do you do this?
