Alcoholism and drug addiction are all ABOUT lies, manipulation, shame, guilt, etc. And we don't even realize what we are doing while we are doing it. That's why it is good that you are starting to SEE.

No contact yet--tonight when I got home from work he was already in the spare bedroom, lights out and sleeping. I noticed he ran out of beer yesterday--so he probably just went to bed. Funny, when he would try to quit drinking in the past (which lasted ONE day) he would be grumpy and go to bed really early. I hated being around him on those days.

So today is 5 days living under the same roof and not communicating. So healthy. But it's doing me good. The more silence I have from him without him trying to patch things up, the more resolve I have. Today I didn't have that sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach when I was driving home. I'll get through this!

Keep it going, and you will be strong, able to keep saying "no" to him, when he gets round to trying to change your mind. If you feel this is wrong for you, no benefit to you and you want it over, then it is over and dusted.

God bless

How do you deal with that guilt on top of everything else?
CYA (Change Your Attitude)

You are offering him the gift of freedom. Freedom to live his life the way he chooses. Freedom to drink and use as often as he desires. Freedom to openly consume in his own personal space.
