This is my first book, opening up my life with a husband hooked on alcohol. The book is honest with reality where ignoring the signs of abnormal drinking…and not doing anything about it, brings the addicted deeper into their habit.
Someone Stop This Merry-Go-Round tells of the conflict, confusion, and fear I dealt with behind closed doors. It started in the late 1970s and I see many families living the life I had back then. There is no reason to because alcohol and drug abuse are open in today’s world. Back then, we were ashamed our loved one was fighting this or we were hiding it, which protects them from making choices with their lives.
There are many lessons in this book on what I’d do differently today if I had the knowledge back then. The non-drinker becomes just as sick because we remember what happened during the blackouts. Sitting back and doing nothing made me as bad as my husband’s actions because we allowed our two young daughters to witness battles they never should have to cause them to live in fear and insecurity.
Follow the sequel Please, God, Not Two about losing my daughter, Lori, after Richie died from the same disease.
