Q-4: My husband is an alcoholic. He verbally and emotionally abuses me whenever he is intoxicated. I have two school going children.  Many times, he has threatened me to break our marital relations. But due to family pressure from his own family, he did not do so.  I have allowed him to get second marriage but he does not stop himself from abusing me.  His alcoholic behavior is very painful for me. Please guide me how I can help him and myself? Uzma -  Lahore

A:  Dear Uzma, every one has problem in life. First relax yourself so that you could find a suitable solution of your problem. Actually, alcoholic behavior is the root cause of your family problems. Your husband abused you when he was intoxication. Your in-laws also seemed to be good with you. You also have not mentioned any financial problem. As far as abusive behavior of your husband is concerned, it is curable. You immediately contact to professionals who are providing treatment and rehabilitation services to drug addicts and alcoholics. They will also guide you pertaining to the alcoholic-related problems. Talk to your in-laws and try to motivate your husband for getting treatment. Avoid arguing with him when he is drinking or intoxicated. Intoxication limits the ability to comprehend what other is saying.  You will have to develop patience because getting treatment once does sure that your husband will never use alcohol. Chances of relapse will always be there. DFN
