Once I completely gave in to the addiction - admitted I was powerless - it was easier to hand them over(pride not withstanding!) I'm ashamed at what I have put my spouse through and humbled by how supportive she is being.
I know exactly what you mean by switching addictions - getting clean is the easy part - staying clean is the life long goal.
Sorry to hear about the break up - even if it was for the best, it's still painful.
Hang in there and thanks for the support
Pollycat - thanks for the support. What I want is to keep reading, keep posting and draw on all of your strenghts and your good and bad experiences.
How much do I want it? I don't feel I have much left - each day is as bad or worse than the other - all I want is the day to end.
I want to become attached to this forum, and use it as one of my tools to remain strong and determined.
Thanks for reaching out
