My husband is a compulsive gambler and now becoming an alcoholic. He left me and is emotinally very abusive and completely unavailable to our children or me. We have ben trying to work out our marriage bc he says he no longer gambles and is in a 12 step program, I wanted so much to believe him. His behavior is more erratic than ever and even though he does not gamble he uses credit cards and buys new furniture, car, like it is nothing. Now he binge drinks and gets very mean and blames me. I wanted so much for our family to work and I do love him but he cannot stop lying, drinking, and I cannot rely on him for anything at all. He was so drunk and mean last night and now I know I have to let him go. We are still separated but I was hoping the reconcilliation would work. I feel guily bc maybe if he continues the program eventually he will get better, but the trauma to me has gotten to be too great. I feel devastated and cannot believe he is making these choices and treated me so horrible last evening. I feel empty. Is there any hope?
