Living with a drinker can be challenging. It's hard to accept what's going on because it causes so many issues. Everything seems so difficult to live with and manage. You want to help and make things better but it's out of your control...but you try anyway. If only he/she will stop. Listen to you..do what you ask/suggest. Life would be better. Remember that people that drink have usually if not always experienced #trauma. They are self medicating to numb the pain. They're hurting. It's hard to find compassion when it's all going on. They're imperfect as are you. I'm not saying their behaviour is acceptable but there are reasons for it. How much do you know about why your #drinker is drinking? Usually if they're dependant they are sick of being sick.

I find myself getting #anxious about being late.I used to be late ALL the time,now I'm more conscious of keeping people waiting. I feel really on edge, especially if there's traffic, watching each minute past, can anyone relate? #acoa I tell myself there isn't anything I can do. I talk about how anxiety feels in this video.Pop this into a web browser. Bit.ly/acoaanxiety

This is a personal share, a picture of my Mum & Dad.He died nearly 24 years ago,I miss the relationship I hoped I'd have with him. #Alcoholism took his life and I never really knew what happened to him. Why he started drinking. If you understand their reason then you can have compassion for the #drinker in your life. They too have low self esteem and confidence. Most of them if not all have had some sort of #trauma in their life.

Do the drinkers struggle with life or death? They struggle with life, they can't cope and so often they resort to drink to numb their feelings. After drinking for a long time, the pleasure disappears and it just necessity,very little joy comes from drinking. #recovery #alcoholism

Remember that if you want something to be different you have to DO something different. It is totally possible to get what you need and want. You may need support and advice so then ask. People love to help. Maybe you want to get out of a toxic situation..whether it's a relationship or work or something else. You don't have to do it alone. Start to do your research and the more knowledge you have the easier it will be.

This week's #blog is about how much you punish yourself from what the #drinker in your life said to you. Often they said very hurtful things which as a child stay with you, you believe them because why wouldn't you? Sadly they don't always speak the truth.

When you #reflect on your #Easter so far. What's been the most enjoyable part of it for you? Being with specific people, doing certain things? Maybe you've had some much needed time to yourself. I find myself enjoying time with family, which is something I've not always enjoyed. #selflove #selfcare #selfdevelopment #SelfImprovement #recovery #acoa #coa #alcoholism #alcoholabuse #alcoholmisuse #lightbulbmoment #mentalhealth #ptsd #trauma #anxiety #selfesteem #confidence

Happy Easter to all my followers. I hope you are enjoying the break if you're off work. I'm thinking of those that have to work! Has anyone tried the M & S chocolate and salted caramel hot cross buns yet??

Morning all. I hope you're planning on a lovely Easter break. I know for some it's a tough time. Well most days can be hard if you live with a drinker. It doesn't matter what day of the week it is. I invite you to think of something you've done, achieved, survived,or learnt in the past week. Take time to have a think then go and celebrate it some how. You deserve to recognise even the smallest thing, and in doing so it makes you feel good and keeps you aware of what you done. Love to hear about your celebrations.

You are important no matter what other people in your life say. You're worth investing in. Giving yourself what you need. It's not selfish! You could end up being a martyr if you do it too much. If you don't feel comfortable doing what you want, ask yourself. What's stopping me? Is it fear of rejection? Worried about upsetting people? Maybe that feeling of not deserving to put yourself first? Sometimes it's more subtle..you run around helping others and leaving very little energy..time and effort for yourself. The thing is...you keep doing it don't you? So is it more comfortable to stay where you're at with what you know than step out and do something different? It's your choice. Weigh up the costs of giving Vs receiving and doing what you want for you. Get in touch when you're ready to put you first! Jo@johuey.co.uk

Do you think that it's possible to transform how you react to the drinker in your life? Not react when they say horrible things, not answer the phone at 2am, not tidy up after them. #boundaries are key. Key yourself safe, and sane!

How easy or hard is it for you to say no? And feel ok with your decision? Do you feel guilty if you say no, worried what others will think of you? Is it hard to say no and stick to it especially if you keep getting it in the ear from the person you're saying no to? Giving in to others in essence is saying no to someone....you! Some are happy with that..as long as others are ok that's what matters. This saddens me. That's not ok in my books. You are worthy. No one person is better than another. I know #conflict is something people dislike. I guess who likes it..but sometimes we assume they'll be conflict when in fact there might not be. How do you know? Also..people generally don't like it when they don't get there own way.. they're entitled to not like it but that doesn't mean it's wrong. Think about kids..you can't give them what they want all the time. It's the same with adults. Remember it says alot when you compromise yourself and don't stick to your #boundaries. #selflove #selfcare #selfdevelopment #SelfImprovement #recovery #acoa #coa #alcoholism #alcoholabuse #alcoholmisuse #lightbulbmoment #mentalhealth #ptsd #trauma #anxiety #selfesteem #confidence

#intimaterelationships for #childrenofalcoholics can be hard work. Often keeping your partner at arms length, taking time to #trust, #insecurities, #jealousy and #fear of #abandonment. Ultimately you want to be loved, but it's hard to #letgo.

Are you in #fear in an area of your life? Maybe you want to make a decision, change or take a risk but you're too scared? Write down something you want, then work back in small steps. Does it seem doable? If not, make it smaller! #acoa #coa Your thoughts are driving the fear which turns into feelings and stops you even trying. Get control of your thinking. Start to change the record. Tell yourself the opposite of what you'd usually say. See things as a challenge rather than a disaster. Small steps remember!
