I unfortunately wasted a year with one - who STILL won't admit he has a drinking problem even though he spends 7 out of 7 days with a beer in his hand from sun up to end of the day - he chooses to not really work making up excuses so that he can do his carpentry work for hardly any $$$ from a friend whose house he is slowly working on -but mostly there drinking beer the entire day .. WTF I finally realized drunks don't STOP for anyone or anything it is there end all be all in life - WTF I don't understand addiction but it is NOT pretty and a recipe for disaster... What a lesson and a nightmare - and they are like sociopaths they lie so much - I think largely out of their drunkenness - AND it destroys the body... but they never seem to care - WOW... never again what do others think?

The only people who would choose to date an alcoholic is yes, another alcoholic.
Alcoholism is a disease, which has been linked to genetics. Most alcoholics don't think they have a problem, however some do.
They have no direction. They are addicts because the alcohol fills a void in their lives. There body becomes dependent on it. They become attached to that relaxed feel good feeling they get when their drunk. It's a temporary fix for a larger problem. Obviously, they are not happy with themselves and the life that he/she lives.
The only way for an alcoholic to become stone cold sober is for them to realize that they have a problem. They have to be the people to seek out the help.
It's very sad because you have to think about all the money they are wasting, but also it's slowly killing them, too
I don't wish this on anyone. I would never expect a girl to want to be in a relationship with me if in fact I was an alcoholic.
Being around an alcoholic will only make you more depressed and less productive. You don't want someone in your life that is going to be detrimental to your everyday life.
