Hi Debbie


Welcome. I am Beth, an alcoholic. Both of my girls have, and once in a while still, attend AA meetings with my DH and I. It has been my experience that most people love seeing them there, and have enjoyed seeing them grow up.


ANYWAY, my second piece of advice is to listen to your therapist. You need to see a lawyer about a legal separation, even if you don't want a divorce. By signing legal papers, you can separate your finances from his from this point.


My third piece of advice is to make sure that you get to a doctor and get tested for STDs. I know, that is harsh. I don't mean to be, I am just realistic. IF he got drunk and got stupid with the wrong person, you need to know that you are safe. I am not by any means saying he was unfaithful, but drunk and stupid and sex sometimes go together.


We are here for you!! Please keep in touch.
