I don't think I have any answers for you either. I think that's something that you have to find within yourself. But whatever happens, I hope you talk to your DH before deciding. My DH is an alcoholic too and I'm thankful that it's never gotten that bad. But at the same time I realize that we're certainly not immune to that, especially with some of the slides he's had. A part of me wants to say to him "It's me or the alcohol" and I imagine you've felt the same at times. But I don't think it's that simple, and I don't think he would ever flat out choose the alcohol. What steps has he taken to get back on track after being fired like that?

Hi Cathy,

Just wanted to let you know that you are definitely not alone as was said earlier.
