My partner has been very unjust to me and to make matters worse, he has a drinking problem that could kill him.  It is so hard to forgive him under this circumstance.  Can you offer me some advice on forgiveness in this challenging context?  Is the forgiveness process somehow different if the other literally is destroying the self?

Actually, the forgiveness process will not differ to a great extent when the person is destroying the self.  You might actually forgive for the original offense and then forgive him for the situation in which he now is not working with you to rise above the very challenging situation.  In other words, you can forgive twice and the second one may be harder than the first because the person is not working as a team with you.
