So my husband goes to an aa meeting and at his last meeting he has to bring a family member, it’s court ordered, so he wants to say he doesn’t drink. When he hasn’t stopped, he told me that if I don’t say he does..( Ill see what happens) so I dont know what to do, bc I want him to stop and I don’t feel like I have to lie for him.
You need to be honest for the sake of his health as well as yours. Addicts quit when they are ready to quit they cannot be forced. Don’t sacrafice your intergrity for his problem. I would definitely recommend you start attending family support groups as well. One of the hardest parts about addiction is denial. If you lie for him you are only feeding into this. He needs to face his demons on his own.
