My husband went to rehab for alcoholism, and has been "sober" for over a year. Just after Christmas I found a crack pipe in his pocket and confronted him. He said he was glad I found it, wanted to get caught and that would be the end of it - it was just the "stress of Christmas" that made him use crack and he felt dirty going to skid row to buy it. Back in the day we did coke together (5 or so years ago now), but never crack. His birthday was July 13th and he sank into a deep depression - wouldn't get off the couch all weekend and cancelled his birthday plans with his Mom and son. We had a huge fight - divorce was thrown around. Then back at work Monday I saw a whole lot of withdrawls over the weekend from my bank account adding up to $200 - all in the middle of the night when I was asleep. I was sure it was crack. I searched the car and found that little piece of steel wool. But last week I changed my PIN, he has had $0. He hasn't sold anything, has been in a fine mood, eats, sleeps normally. My question is - if he was using would he be alright less than a week after his $ supply ran out and he couldn't buy any drugs? I am now questioning if he was using or "just" depressed. The steel wool could have been there since winter. But then why would he take money out in the middle of the night from our one income family and make us broke for over a week?
