Overview

The Alcoholic Husband Primer: Survival Tips For The Alcoholic's Wife by Wren Waters

Alcoholism has been called a "family disease" and yet the family, in particular the wife, of the alcoholic seems to go unseen by the addiction and recovery communities. And what support, advice and programs there are for the women married to alcoholics tend to be alcoholic-centric. "The Alcoholic Husband Primer" is advice for the wives of alcoholics based on their needs - not the needs of the alcoholic. It doesn't label women as "co-dependent." It doesn't accuse them of being "enablers." It's real, practical, everyday advice for the wives of alcoholics...written by the wife of an alcoholic.

About the Author

Wren Waters is a mother, writer and the wife of an alcoholic. The first two roles she chose: the last role chose her. Never did she dream she would marry an alcoholic nor of pursuing her writing dreams through the role of an alcoholic's wife. However, when she realized the wolf that was at her door - and discovered what she felt was a gross deficiency in reading material written FOR the alcoholic's wife - she accepted her writer's destiny. Waters rejects all theories of "co-dependency," "enabler" and any other labels that suggest women married to alcoholics are some how complicit in their husband's drinking. She writes completely and un-apologeticallly for women, like herself, who are trying to live their best lives while navigating life with an alcoholic husband. Also by Wren Waters: "So You Want To Win Her Back: Tough-Love Advice For The Alcoholic Who Wants To Try To Save His Marriage" and "Leaving 101: How To Prepare To Leave Your Alcoholic Husband - Even If You're Not Ready To Leave Your Alcoholic Husband.
