One of my cousins who is an alcohol addict married a man who also drinks like a fish. I believe they met in a bar or at some party where everyone was an guzzling as much alcohol as they could. Right now, the lady's drinking is worse and since the two have been beating each other up, I'm concerned about her. How can such a person be helped? Is it true that marrying or living with someone who is a drug addict makes it hard for person trying to overcome their addiction even if they try to?
