I talked with my husband about our legal separation and child support he was pretty shocked this was actually happening but very agreeable on payments and other issues. I thought he would try to fight me about things but he was very nice. It makes it even more difficult I love him so much I have cried myself to sleep every night since. I know in my heart this is what's best until he gets some help. I know I tried everything I could but I still feel like I could have done more. I hope this is his rock bottom and he will snap out of it, but I can't keep holding on. I don't know where to go from here some of my friends are bashing him and it makes it harder. They don't understand how difficult this is without those comments. It was easier when I was angry, but now I'm just flat out heartbroken. I'm trying to stay strong but I just want to tell him how much I love him how much I want him back how much I need him to be the sober man I love. Sorry I needed to vent

I'm so sorry you're going through this, Mama. Addiction is a very serious and heartbreaking disease for all involved. I hope this will be his rock bottom, and he will get some help soon, for your (and your child's sake). *hugs*

I am going through the exact same thing. I told him I reached my breaking point and that we needed time apart. You are right. It's easier when you're mad. Now he is trying to win me back and I keep telling him we need to work on ourselves bc I'm too hurt and he needs to work on his addiction

I'm sorry you are going through that too. It's really hard we just need to remember we are stronger than they are and we can't cave in they need help and the more we let them back in our lives the less they will do for themselves I just hope he doesn't drink himself to death .
