Hi- I am new here. My husband and I have been married for almost 15 years. We have 3 beautiful kids. His drinking got out of control over the past few months (although I know this has been somewhat of a tamed problem for a while). He likes to drink Vodka- but not in front of me. He sneaks it. Buys it at a store and hides it. Lies about it etc. Well he was arrested for a DWI which may have been his wake up call to go to a 30 day rehab which is where he is now. We have tried things prior to this, therapy, 7 day inpatient stay, meds etc In fact, he drank while on antabuse and never got sick. I know he doesn't want to be this way. I know he wants to change. His counselors tell me he is extremely motivated and doing well. How do I even begin to have hope? How can I trust him when he comes home that he won't drink. I truly love this man and I know that under the alcohol is the man I married. Will the 30 day stay help him? Addiction is so awful and hurts so many people. I am so lost, taking 3 kids, working, the house etc all on my own.
Any advice or words of wisdom are welcomed! Thanks!
