It’s hard to know where to start. Do I start when I first met my partner? when he first drank alcohol? when he first started getting treatment? I really don’t know when it began.
My boyfriend and I first started seeing each other at a party when we were both 17. Ironically, we’d both had too much to drink when we found each other. I can’t speak for my partner, but I knew it was serious quite early on. He brought out the spontaneous in me, broadened my horizons, and made me laugh. I love him and I always will.
Despite the alcohol, my life is better with him in it.
