Re: Husband is sober, finally but...
First off your not weak....you left, right? I know your pain, I've been where you are, 'cept I waited till 26 years had gone by and my pdoc kept getting ticked when I'd show up with a Black Eye or a Split Lip...but hey, he was gonna get better right?
Don't go back, now or if ever, if your not ready. You don't owe your drunk hubby any explanations, a simple No, is all he needs to hear. Any alcoholic can stop drinking for a few weeks or months....that means squat!
Sorry I know this is on the harsh side, but there's no excuse for someone beating on a woman, a man, a child...anyone that's trying to help them. Yes we have the distinction of being enablers...why? so we can keep our marriages from crumbling and doing whats best for our children? Sometimes it takes a while to figure out whats best for the kids, isn't and it sure as hell isn't whats best for us.
Stay strong, get some support, it will help, big time... Al-anon meetings are great, therapy helps....
