My husb. of 11 yrs has an on and off Ritalin addiction. I've caught him several times the last 9+ mos stealing my ritalin. When he stops, he's sleeping or complaining he's exhausted. I've hidden it for months(he's admitted to watching me to find out where) and now I keep it at work, taking only what I need home. He says as recently as this am "he's going to get help, he's out of control". On our anniversary 8/5/11 he convinced me to "stop being mad", and just go on a date to try to reconnect-we had a ball. That weekend he stole 30 pills. Upon confrontation, he ret. pills and promised to get help. 2 wks ago my pillbox went missing from purse. He denied it. Today, 12 pills went missing from my stomach pill bottle (pills are same size and I thought mixed in with those would be a good hiding place). He's doing alot to "make up" for hurting me-only he's STILL doing it! We have a 5 year old son who we both cherish and unfortunately he's aware of our fighting and we're both doing our best to now get into any discussions when he's around and redirect our focus on "family time". I love him but can't trust him and don't know what to do. Any advice? Thank you.
