Recently, through experience and counseling, I figured out that my husband's drinking triggers my PTSD. He used to be addicted to Heroine, Crack, Cocaine, pain pills and is still addicted to alcohol. One day, while he was high, he shot off a gun in the house (missing me by 6 inches). Long story short, he is trying to get his life back on track, has stopped the drugs, but is still drinking in excess. He knows about my PTSD and the triggers, but it does not stop him from drinking in front of me or around me. The other day I caught him drinking in the parking lot of our apartment; he told me he was taking the trash out. Anyway, he keeps beer in his truck so that when he is home, he can sneak out of the house for a fix. Guys, I feel like I am dying inside. I am not sure what to do. like I said, he is trying to put his life back together and we have an 8 year old son. I dont' want to break up the family....can anyone help???
