Ive decided to leave him, i cant live in fear. my husband is a good man sober- why oh why cant he see what his drinking has caused? I know its a disease but when one know's how much is at stake, why do they not go get help?  I'm sorry

well good luck..it's a tough place to be in but there are worse...i think you should leave.. in time things will get better..when something goes worng in a marriage and you feel like you failed that can be such a drag..but your not alone...there are so many going through this rich and poor...and be carefull.....billy

when i think of my x and what he threw away with us...and i get angry i think of my nail tech.Gorgeous gal,sweet..married her high school sweetheart...unfortunately.Loved him so much...and he got in2 heroin.She tried to help him  tons of time.....he went thru treatment many times......in/out jail.....still the needle and his skanky addict girlfriend held more appeal than his wife and his beautiful 5 yr.old  son who has no relationship with him.He now sits in prison til 2009.Did she fail him?NO WAY....he CHOSE the needle and the hell he has now.

Don't be sorry. My ex-husband was mean when he was sober and real bad when he was drunk. He was on drugs too. I was tired of getting  kicked, hit and choked everynight. One night I just hit him with a frying pan. I don't suggest this, but if I hadn't done it I wouldn't  be writing this now. After we divorced he fell asleep with a lit cigarette in his hand and almost died. I'm glad it's over for us. God Bless

Dove hasn't been active since 2008 but you never know she may get an email and decide to comment. I'd wonder the same thing!

My therapist gave me a book a while back called "The Verbally Abusive Relationship." It has allowed me to find my way out of the vicious cycle of abuse in relationships by understanding what was going on and how to stop it. Leaving really helped too! It started a process that has changed my life.
