Male or female no one should put up with abuse or violence in a relationship. As the article indicates alcohol does not create an abuser. He or she is there already. We have laws in place to provide protection from abuse in our relationships. If domestic violence or verbal abuse is affecting you we can help, call the Family Team at Gardner Leader on 01628 671636.
The reality is that the majority of abusers are not alcoholics. They use alcohol as part of the wider abusive behaviour. People working with perpetrators of domestic violence even report that abusers will consciously: *Go out and get drunk to create an excuse to get violent *Act more drunk than they really are *Use alcohol consumption to punish their partner, eg for confronting or disagreeing with them *Pretend they don't remember what they did when drunk
