Can I stay in this relationship or do I have to leave?
My husband is addicted to percocet. I first found out last May of 2013 he came to me with this saying he wanted to stop …… I was so blindsided by this I never saw it coming …..I sat here while he detoxed and I know it was hell for him but it was hell for me as well to see …
I don’t feel bad for the physical symptoms of withdrawal ….. I’m sorry but I have been very sick in life and I have gotten through it because there weren’t things to ease the pain ….. There are millions of people suffering every day so I’m sorry if I lack sympathy for a self inflicted illness and we were under doctors supervision……
He got off them then about three months later I started to notice little similar signs and started to suspect but couldn’t bring myself to confront for fear that if he really wasn’t I didn’t want to insult him…. (What stupidity ) so that was back in October …
Now here we are January of 2014 and signs start popping up again and I know my gut was dead on (Scorpio intuition) and finally told him last night I knew …. He was totally honest and admitted … He said he wanted help again like in the past but after the detox period is over he feels he doesn’t need professional help. This time I don’t want to go through this again he is trying to turn it around and say see this is why I don’t tell you anything and I said don’t turn this on me.
I guess my question is how can I save my marriage and my mind .. We have been married for 17 years and he was completely sober from alcohol and any substance for six years prior to this . He tries to have an occasional beer and claims it doesn’t agree with him which is fine by me because I definitely don’t want that too however I know he is trying to substitute one drug for another which is a red flag ….
So all this being said how can I save me and our marriage I love my husband so much?
and Finally Remember:
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”
– Matthew 7:7-8
