Giving Up On My Marriage of 28 years Due To My Husband's Addictions to Alcohol and Other Substances
I met my husband 29 years ago. My father was an alcoholic. My husband did not drink when we met and were subsequently married. During my first pregnancy, he had an affair and began using drugs and alcohol. I planned to move to my home state without him.
He cleaned his act up for three years. Two years after our twins we're born, he slipped back in to his old behavior. I would leave with my children. Between his promises of change and my children crying for their father, I would come back. I worked full time to support my children with little help from my husband.
He would only work construction jobs" no drug test required" where his crew and friends were like minded alcoholics and drug users. My children left home as soon as they could to escape our bad home life. He had a life threatening illness for 2 years, nearly lost his life.
I provided financial and medical care for him and hoped he would have a new lease on life after he survived and recovered. Sadly, as soon as he recovered he went back to his old ways. I became a Christian during this time, and would be cursed and verbally abused for attending church.He has had treatment for his addictions but lied his way through therapy.
I am now disabled with anxiety, depression and cops. I feel I have no way out. If someone could give me advice and hope of any kind it would be a blessing.
