Alcoholic Spouse

I'll say!
If your spouse is addicted to alcohol, there are some things you can do.
First, seek godly counsel.  Go to and do a search on our website for the word "counselor."   Then read the article called "How to Choose a Christian Counselor."  There are additional resources available at, too.
Second, be sure you're attending a strong, God-fearing, Bible-teaching church, a church that teaches and practices Biblical church discipline.  Surround yourself with supportive, loving followers of Jesus Christ.
And third, pray.  Pray for your spouse, and pray for yourself as you help him or her bring beauty out of ashes.
One final thought.  That website again is  Hear me loud and clear: Alcohol abuse does not have to ruin your marriage and family.
I'm Dennis Rainey, and that's Real FamilyLife.
