If you live with a problem drinker, if you feel the frustration, anger, despair and helplessness that comes with the situation then this website was built for you. It contains some new tools and an approach that will help you to view your situation in a quite different way, a way that will help you to concentrate on what you can change rather than on what you can’t.
Inside Bottled-up there are growing article libraries on issues surrounding problem drinking and addiction and on
emotional health and how to maintain it.
Undoubtedly the biggest resource will be YOU. You have a wealth of experience of things that work and don’t work. You know how to survive and others could benefit from your experience and they from yours. So at the heart of the website will be building a community.
There is a Blog that will contain opinion pieces about different issues. However one of the strengths is that the blog invites your opinion, advice and, most of all, your experience. So we all learn from each other. We aim to include in the blog burning issues that affect all of you, issues like “Why won’t he stop drinking?” or “Does he love me if drinks like that?” However, although we will discuss these issues this website is about and for you not the drinker
There is a forum where you can chat with others about issues that affect you and again where others can share their experiences and advice.
We are producing regular audios to help you to live more peacefully with your drinker, and with yourself. One series is all about looking after yourself. It contains topics like Disclosure, Self-Esteem, Dealing with Emotions etc. Another series contains answers to member's questions. Currently the member's section contains over 15 hours of audios on a variety of topics.
Come on in get the information and advice that you want and be part of a community that understands and cares about you.
