Rosemary grew up without active alcoholism in her immediate family but did have a grandfather that was an abusive alcoholic and that affected her mum. Her second husband was an alcoholic and used coercive control to stop her from leaving him. Eventually she sought help and found Al-Anon Family Groups and with support from members at her local meeting Rosemary was able to develop the courage to separate from him and establish a more meaningful life for herself and her family.If someone else's drinking is causing you a problem then you can phone the Al-Anon Family Groups helpline in Australia on 1300 252 666 or go online at al-anon.org.au.#Alcoholism #Al-Anon #Recovery #DomesticViolenceShow your support by donating to 3CR https://www.3cr.org.au/donate
