Me and my husband were baptised together Sunday Fathers day in a little church in leesburg TX..The chuch is 140 years old. He is still at the rehab, House of Diciples. He is doing great. I am working on a place to live. Right now still live with my son...
I really hope he follows the path of recovery that will be taught to him. I agree with ibizan to NOT be a punching bag EVERY again. But if it goes well like I will pray for, that won't be happening again. It's a good life for the recovering alcoholic and his family when he's following the path and principles of the 12 steps. Hope for the best and plan for the worse for your well being. And pray
That's great to hear that you will be supportive. If all goes well he will learn how to make right on all his wrongs. If you break your neighbors window with a baseball and simply go to him with an apologie, that does not fix the window. I you repair the window, that is an ammends. He will learn how to make ammends as long as it doesn't harm another by doing so. Sharing a guilt is not an ammends. Some things the recovering alcoholic simply can not make right, the best he can do is to not repete that wrong again.
You deserve a big bear hug!u r so welcome....u need to do in ur heart what u feel 2 be right....u've had enuf...u don't need to take anymore.this man owes u a TON of apologies but talk is cheap...the proof will be in his behavior down the road.keep me posted...hope u have a better new year!:)
I just saying Love and Understanding is better than Anger HANDS DOWN! I just read an Angry post by ibizan based on her personal experience with someone other than your husband. You said " He is not abusive to me..sweetest man you will ever meet. until he drinks". He is now in a good treatment center it sounds like (Finally) Of Course take care of yourself. I'm just saying to try and do it with a kind heart. Forgiveness will heal ALL wounds whether or not he gets it together it will still heal you, and you won't have to live Angry.
