My husband was on meth and drank
Asked Nov 9, 2007, 08:49 PM
This is how it began, my husband was on meth and I knew it, but when he brought into our home I told him to leave and he did . This was over a year ago. He stopped the meth about 10 months ago on his own. We always drank from time to time but not a lot. Well he is back and has been for 8 months. While he was gone he drank everyday. I let him come home 3 different times and he drank everyday.and one night he left while being drunk and never came back. Well that was almost a year ago. Now when he wants to drink like we aways did befire he did all of this I get very upset. Tonight it was a very big fight over it. I told him that every time he tells me he wants to drink, that it jut brings up all he done to me. I am hard person to get close to anyone and I let myself fal in love with him and I went through such a hard time, my heart got broken. But we all mess up and I love him enough to forgive him and try to make this work. But the problem is that when he wants to drink it brings it all up for me. He will let me talk to him about this but becomes upset with me on how I feel. He tells me that we have always drank from time to time. But things have changed. He tells me he love me and won't ever leave me again. I told him I couldn't tell him what to do that he was a grown man and to make his own choses in life and that if he wanted to leave me to go. I didn't want to drag this out. He said he didn't want to leav and that he loved me, but I feel since I have told him so many times on how it makesme feel that he should try to understand what this is doing to me and not drink until I can get over this. I have forgiven him for doing this to me. The drugs took control of his every move.I am trying so hard to move past this, but when he wants to drik it just brings it all back. Am I wrong ? I know this is long but I need some help with this. I have a 17 year old son that knows what is going on and I don't want to put him through anymore than he has already been through. Please please help. I forgot to say that he said he would bring up the drinking anymore. But won't he resent me for this ?
