I’m a 45 year old husband and father. I’m an alcoholic and drug addict. I consider myself very fortunately blessed but all is coming down fast… just found out my wife is cheating and she’s an alcoholic as well. I’ve got my own small business, she’s a teacher What to do?

Dear Scott,

So very sorry that you’re in such a difficult and dire circumstance. But I’m glad you’ve chosen to reach out and admit that you life is out of control and totally unmanageable.

My recommendation is that you find a local AA or NA meeting and go TODAY. There are usually a lot of great meetings Friday nights and you can begin to work the 12-steps. Just go to the meeting and listen and open your mind and heart to what is being said.

You are blessed and you can get through this, but no alone. You need the help of others who have been right where you’re at and know the path back to a life worth living.

Go to 90 meetings in 90 days, work the steps and find a sponsor. You will learn how to move past your addiction and connect with others who you will be able to lean on for moral support to help you stay sober.

Going to meetings is the best thing you can do for yourself and your family. Hopefully, once you’re working the steps your wife will be willing to start going to meetings too, and together you can rebuild your relationship and your life.

Good Luck,
