Watching tv. She is asleep on the couch,but not asleep, it's a three bottle sleep. No friends left to talk to, family must be kept away, they don't know. Barely hanging on. Secretly dispose of all her bottles. First time I've looked for help. Know it wont help but good to write it down. It's a start. Know this is for wives but can't find anything for husbands. Don't think we are supposed to ... Something. Understand boundries, cannot walk away.
Wow. Please know I hear you, I feel your struggle. If you let someone know (family), it’s an opening. When you let those words escape your mouth, some weight - ever so light - comes off your shoulders. It does. You can’t keep this inside, it will eat at you. Please stop
Hiding the bottles. That’s enabling. You’re hiding it as much as she is. Bring it to light and you will feel light. There will be no change unless you start to acknowledge there needs to be a change. Lastly, don’t forget about yourself!!!
Welcome notinuse ... You are not alone. 1. Addiction is not gender specific 2. Other husbands are here. 3. This group is amazing and wonderful for all members. Just reading posts is uplifting and reaching out is cathartic.
