    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Hello and welcome,

    Your wife made her own choices and you don't really know whether leaving her would have resulted in a different outcome. I can understand why this is all so fraught with emotion and guilt for you.

    It might really help you to discuss this with a therapist, to process the issues involved and your loss itself. Don't let yourself become another casualty of her drinking.
