On the 22nd of this month I threw my husband a little family party to celebrate 30 days sober. Big accomplishment seeing as he's been drinking heavily since he was 14 and just celebrated his 35th birthday. The only problem is, I don't think he's really sober. I know my husband and I know he did good for about a week after he got home from his 6 day detox stay. So now I'm faced with this, we have two children. Who do I put first? Who do I chose, because thats what I feel like I'm having to do. Raising them in a home where daddy passes out standing up, or at the dinner table, and he's always gone, and he never makes sense, and he gets loud and mean. Or standing by him, even if it takes 20 tries. Which if we didn't have children it wouldn't even be a question. But now I just don't know. And its not just his drinking again...his moods. He could say really hurtful things before, but now. He just doesn't want to talk to me. At all. I'm trying. I'm trying so hard. I just don't know what to do anymore> I don't know whats right nad whats wrong.
