At least there you might get the help you need.
I hear the message you are trying to convey; was even saying to myself that I wish someone would've written me a letter like that when I was in the throws of my addiction.....
Up until the mass letters,dealers and law enforcement on both federall and local levels became apparent.
While your crusade is intended to solve one set of problems it potentially creates a myriad of others.
While attempting to expose certain individuals,you place the entire
family at risk.Retaliatory efforts come to mind,which compromise safety.
Do you deserve better,sure....Do you deserve to feel appreciated and loved,definitely...we all do.
You can't save your husband and
protect your son at the same time;not this way.
Extrapolating further,you can't save your husband this way either.....what it will do is force him to go outside of his locale to attain this insidious substance.
You see,a person addicted will possess chameleon-like qualities and will either adapt to their environment or search elsewhere for an environment that better suits them....to score,or to recover....the choice is his to make.
I saw this somewhere and would like to share this poinant point with you: a crackhead will steal your wallet and then help you search for it....an attestation to a specific mindset.
When I was about to recover from the vices of crack(some 11 years ago) I wrote a letter to self and in it I saw the negative,respected it and knew the only way to rid myself of these ways of mines was to part ways with the part of me that wanted to flee.
If he gets to that point,or even comes close,then the possibility of recovery can be entertained.
I cannot tell you what to do but I hope that this response helps to shed a little light on your situation.
Please be safe.
