DEAR DEIDRE: I ONLY discovered how much my partner drinks when she moved in with me, and lockdown made it worse.
The start of our relationship was brilliant.
We met online two years ago and got on so well I invited her to share my flat while she waited for her divorce money that would go on buying her own place. She is 38 and I’m 47.
She was drinking three or four bottles of wine a week but once she was furloughed that must have doubled.
If she wasn’t asleep she turned into another person, a horrible one.
She would even accuse me of cheating.
Our relationship is toxic when she’s been drinking.
I’ve asked her to get help but she said she doesn’t need it.

DEIDRE SAYS: The sad truth is you can’t solve someone else’s drink problem for them.
Tell your partner that you love her sober but her drinking is killing your relationship.
She has to choose between the alcohol and you.
My e-leaflet Dealing With A Drinker can help you check you’re not enabling her alcohol problem without realising, and also details support.
