He says this drug has a strong hold on him but I tell him God is bigger than all of that. I have to leave for me. I'm miserable with him and I feel as if I'm enabling him. I don't give him money but I do everything else so he doesn't want for anything like food or shelter. As I said earlier, he is a good person but he loves the drugs more than me. Advise please.
I wouldn't say he is a hopeless case but at this point in time,the only thing he can and will do is continue to bring both you and your children down with him.
He always has a place to go,which is back to rehab and i'm thinking inpatient,for longer than a month.The question remains whether or not he will be willing
Prayer is fine in and of itself but I must remind that The Lord helps those who help themselves.
The work has to be put in,for the results to be seen......
Take it from a person who has been there(on the side of addiction).
He doesn't seem to be leaving you with many options.
He may love you more than the drugs but the psychology of this particular addiction dictates that need trumps love,time and time again.
The psychological manifestation of need
is apparent in him.
Unless he addresses the underlying cause,he'll be going into battle with a slingshot minus the rocks(no pun intended).
