I honestly wish I would have divorced him the first go around, it would have saved me a lot of heartache and grief... No one says that you can't get remarried one day if he really shows that he's serious about his recovery... Right now take care of you and do what's best for you, not him or anyone else but YOU!!
I, too, have felt as if I was abandoning a sick child rather than an adult. I had stopped to recognize the person I fell in love with. There was a complete stranger standing in front of me yet looked and sounded like my husband.

How did you detach and focus on living for you?
