I'm brand new to this website and was so glad to find the support. I rediscovered my sanity through Al-Anon in April and don't know where I would be without the tools I have been given.
My AH started out years ago as the social drinker who had to be the "life of the party" but over the past two years, has turned into a daily drinker and lost the "happy drunk" moniker.
I left him in May because we all know how mean they can become. The day I left he became sober but refused to go to AA or therapy. He said he was sober all of this time but I found out this weekend, just as I was about to move back home, that he had lied. My sponsor says that if an alcoholic's lips are moving, he's lying. He started drinking on day 31.
Now, it's down to divorce or AA and therapy. He has gone to two meetings and has an appointment for therapy but that can all change next week. Why can't they just commit to treatment? I know through AlAnon not to check up on his program but it's killing me.
So sad when I think of the great man I married. I don't want my marriage to end but I can't stay on this merry go round.
