Do I Have an Alcoholic Husband Quiz
Sometimes it is hard to tell when you start dating someone if they have an issue with alcohol, and sometimes, they develop an alcohol issue over time for different reasons. Sometimes it’s hereditary, a coping mechanism for stress in their life, a way to stay social and relaxed, or a lifelong struggle they have not been able to overcome. How do you know if they just like to drink or if they are actually an alcoholic? Do they meet the criteria to be considered an alcoholic? Is it really as big of an issue and you perceive it to be, or are you overreacting? Wondering, “Is my husband an alcoholic?” Take this quiz to reveal the truth.
