Two more weeks went by and she gained back the privilege of using our house phone (a land line.) She could now call her friends and her boyfriend. It was the first non-family contact she’d had in a month, and instead of whining that it wasn’t her cell phone, she was grateful to call her best friend. Yes, I was shocked she called her first and not her boyfriend. And she barely used the phone – maybe one call every other day (her own choice, not ours.)

One more thing. Loneliness and anxiety, among other troubles, are almost universally difficult for partners of alcoholics. Reaching out is good. More reaching out is better. Al-Anon is not for everyone in your situation, but those who do find it helpful would probably say that it’s the repeated attendance that makes it work.
