Re: I don't know what to do about my husband anymore! Need advice!

Until your husband is ready and willing to both face his addiction and change his life to recover from it, there is nothing anyone can do to help him.

You will likely help him most by forcing him to realize that you are not willing to take this ride with him and that he cannot include you in his addiction. Hitting rock bottom is usually the only time addicts can consider real change.

Do not let him drag you along, as each day of life is precious and spending it waiting for someone to change is both harmful to you and to your future. Stand strong by you healthy choices and use your energy to make you days happy and productive.

If there comes a day he does choose to live a sober life, you can certainly support him and provide him with your friendship. Until then, your love and caring gestures toward him are not able to be appreciated, accepted or reciprocated.

Time passes very way too quickly to wait for anything or anyone. Take hold of your life and make each second count toward your future.
