How can Alcohol Ruin Relationships? 

Alcohol addiction can easily ruin some of your most valued relationships. The reasons behind the same can be one of these: 

  1. Lack of intimacy 

Intimacy is lost in a relationship when you prioritize alcohol over your partner, friend, or family member.

Honesty is the primary factor to maintain a healthy relationship. However, you may begin to lie or become secretive due to alcohol which can lead your loved one to lose trust in you. 

  1. Codependency and abuse 

You tend to become violent and abusive at times when under the influence of alcohol. This is an unfavorable condition for a healthy relationship. 

  1. Financial imbalance 

You also try to spend a lot on alcohol and other substances to fulfill your addiction. This can force you and your family to enter a major financial crisis and ruin your relationships.
