Once your partner knows you're an addict do you think they can ever look at you the same?

Hi @decisive_maple_575 . I'm glad you're here -- thank you for posting this question!
Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is a medical condition, and can be treated like one (with tools like therapy, medication, etc.) Like you wouldn't blame someone for having a condition like heart disease, we believe people shouldn't be blamed for AUD. Your drinking is not who you are, nor is it a moral failing. I hope that's a helpful perspective for you and your partner! We're actually working on resources for friends and family of Monument members, and will keep you posted as those are published. In the meantime, check these out:
