Susannah Constantine speaks out for first time on being 'highly functioning' alcoholic

She continued: “At that time, as an addict, often what you would do was put all my own defects and find someone else to attach them to, so I thought my husband was passive aggressive.

“But actually, I was the one that was passive aggressive and I’ve realised that over time and in recovery.”

Susannah added: “I was the awful passive aggressive and my poor husband was the one who had to live with it.”

She has been in recovery since 2013, and her “lightbulb moment” came when she realised she was accountable for her decisions.
