I agree with your take on this. My mom comes from a family background of alcoholic wife-beaters, and the day I finally admitted to her that my husband was an alcoholic (I always tried to protect him), her first response was, "Does he ever hit you?" I couldn't believe she would ever think that about him, because he is so not that kind of drunk. But I quickly realized that given her background that was of course the first thing in her mind. I'm concerned about his drinking because it is a symptom of his own abusive past and takes a terrible toll on his mental and physical health.

On the other hand, there have been so many times he pressured me to drink in a social situation because he thought it would help me mellow out. I've tried to explain to him, not too successfully, that I would not react to alcohol the same way he does. It would not loosen my severe social inhibitions; it would make them worse, and make me violent, and I would be exactly the kind of drunk that gives alcoholism its reputation. I don't need to drink to know that with my high-strung, anxious personality, alcohol would be a very bad thing.

Alcohol is a disinhibitor. It turns off the behavioral "filters" that can keep an abusive episode -- or at least the severity of it -- in check in an abuser who is sober. But there isn't a cause-and-effect relationship between the two problems. There's nothing magical about alcohol that turns Dr. Jekyll into Mr. Hyde. Hyde is always there, under the surface. And a sober Jekyll might keep him suppressed indefinitely -- a sober and aware Jekyll that is.

If an abuser is aware that his or her substance abuse is likely to lead to or exacerbate a violent episode and continues to use anyway, I'd have to think he or she has so little regard for his or her partner to begin with that treatment for the chemical dependency is going to help. And while treating the chemical dependency alone isn't going to prevent further abuse, it can make dealing with the underlying pathology of the abusive tendencies easier to work on. If nothing else, it removes a layer of complexity so that there's only one problem to deal with.

But both problems are ones that the abuser will have to address. A victim of abuse is not responsible for the abuse. He or she is also not responsible for the abuser's sobriety. It might be possible to resolve both issues, but I would still recommend to anyone in an abusive relationship to get out. And stay out. The relationship is toxic and while you might have a chance of repairing it later -- much later -- once the abusive partner has done the work of (a) getting sober and (b) addressing the underlying causes of the abuse, until that happens you are at risk.

Another excellent question and another excellent answer. Thank you, both of you.

My ex always used it as his excuse as to why he beat me or my kids, or why he didn't remember beating me or my kids.

I have never thought of it as causal, but rather that it sometimes occurs along side domestic violence and then it really (REALLY) is like throwing gas on a flame.

While it may not be the cause, alcohol can definitely fuel violent outbursts. It's like throwing gasoline onto an already-burning fire.
