    The number one thing you can do when you’re dating an alcoholic is to help them overcome denial.  It’s really the biggest roadblock to getting better. When I was still drinking, I denied how bad it had gotten for years. It wasn’t until my SO made me reazlie how much I was hurting her and others that I finally went to rehab.
