I am so sad. I have been with my husband for ten years and knew he had addiction issues from day one. I foolishly thought it would get better - and it would, sometimes for a few weeks, sometimes for as long and three years. But inevitably, the lying, hiding and drinking would creep back in. This latest time, he had been sober for two full years, then out of nowhere started abusing Robitussin, of all things. He also admitted to inhalents. He is a 33 year old professional and a father of two little boys who adore him. How does this happen? Our oldest is beyond bright and picks up on everything, and I can't risk him being negatively affected by what my husband's addicion issues are going to our family and marriage. I asked him to stay with a friend who runs a sober house. I have no idea how to do this. I love him with all my heart, but I knew something drastic had to happen. I work full time and take care of the boys before and after school (along with four pets, our house, all of our finances and everything else except the yard work)...I have taken on responsibility for everything and made it so easy for him to be irresponsible and unaccountable. I hate what this is doing to our family and hope to God that taking this major step will keep us together in the long run. I'd love to hear any advice or feedback...I don't open up to my family or friends about this b/c I am come from a classic WASP background of "never let 'em see you sweat" and it is very difficult for me to share my struggles with others.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
