Help....

by Giselle
(Florida )

My husband of 2 years addicted to Crack, physically abuses me and steals from me. I need help, he was not like this when we met and I didn't know about his addiction until after marriage. Found out he has been using since age 16. I escaped him and I am in a safe place but he is begging me for me to return to him and also for forgiveness. Keeps saying he will change.

Trust is EARNED on day at a time, your husband must earn back your trust.
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Giselle,

You're in a very difficult position but you must be very strong if you want to help your husband learn how to stay clean. Your husband's actions have destroyed any trust you have for him.

Because you husband has been using since he was an adolescent, recovery may be harder for him and take more patience and focus. You're husband's love for you may be the one thing he needs to help him realize that he must stop using crack.

I highly recommend that you start going to Al-anon meetings in your area today and go to meetings at least three times a week until either he stops using or he is no longer in your life.

Al-anon can teach you about his addiction and help you to set the tough rules necessary to help your husband to end his addiction. Making him earn back your trust may be his BEST hope for recovery.

You should also require that he start attending CA, NA or AA meetings DAILY, until he works the 12 steps and stops using.

Good luck as you take the correct steps to help you and your husband gain your lives back.

Debbie
