Choice of Behaviour
???? Alcohol does not and cannot make a man abuse a woman, it is a “choice of behaviour” and alcohol misuse is frequently used as an excuse; by perpetrators, police, solicitors, judges and magistrates.
Many men drink and do not abuse anyone as a result. On the other hand, many men abuse women when they are sober. It can be easier for some men and for some women to believe that the violence would not have happened if a drink had not been taken.
????Denial and Minimization
It's part of the denial process. Alcoholism and battering do share some similar characteristics. Both may be passed from generation to generation, both involve denial or minimization of the problem, both involve isolation of the family.
