Addiction is such an awful thing. Awful for the person addicted and probably moreso then those that have to watch it.

The Al-Anon meeting is a very good idea.

First of all,please take a deep breath....breath in and out a few times...and try, try to ease up just a bit....


The thing about alkies/addicts is that we are very CAPABLE. We will find a way to get our drug/drink, we are resourceful and creative when it comes to feeding our addictions.


So, if we can find a way to use...why can't we find a place to live, or figure out that our lives aren't working and are unmanageable?


Because we are rescued. Someone puts a pillow under our tush as we fall down. Until our bottoms, hit our bottoms. NOTHING you will do will change him.


You, are addicted to him..the chaos and the drama that surround addicition. Stop obsessing about it..as you can't cure it. Please get some books and check out some support for co-dependency. Melody Beattie has several books about the subject that can help you detach from the situation. One is "Co-Dependent" no more.


Have you attended any Al-Anon meetings? They really might help you in that you would have
