Dont miss the book display of My Alcoholic, My Love by Margaret Moschak at the 2022 ALA Annual Conference & Exhibition.
Margaret Moschak shares how living with an alcoholic spouse is no walk in the park for any marriage in her self-help memoir My Alcoholic, My Love: My Love and Loss of an Alcoholic Husband (Covenant Books; 2020).
My Alcoholic, My Love reveals the grim reality of life in homes torn apart by alcoholism the untold sufferings and miseries that families have to endure from alcoholic loved ones. The authors story is a gripping story of a wife who crumbled under the weight of her husband Rogers alcoholism over the years.
The signs of alcoholism were always there, Moschak wrote in the chapter A Fools Paradise, but I was too blind to see them, even though Roger and I dated off and on for over five years before we married.
She continued: Roger usually drank to ease his way. He needed alcohol to get through social situations, and he often did become more pleasant and relaxed once he had that first drink. In my admiration for him, I managed to ignore the reality of his drinking.
But then, like most at that time, I knew so little about the gradations of alcoholism. An alcoholic was a bum lying in a doorway in the bowery, not the man I was dating.
By sharing her story in My Alcoholic, My Love, the author gives the suffering spouses and their families a much needed voice. By breaking her silence, she reveals to the world that families of alcoholics are victims as well, also needing rescue and comfort more so than their alcoholic loved ones. Moschaks story speaks for the many individuals some of them ashamed of being enablers of their loved ones drinking habit who care so much for their alcoholic loved ones and finally find the courage to say enough.
