"I quit taking antibuse because it's bad for my liver" (he says after drinking an entire bottle of whiskey.

"It's YOUR job to make sure I take my antibuse everyday. If you don't I'll probably drink again" (actually it's NOT my job. Last time I checked I wasn't your mommy)

"AA is full of people standing around the punch bowl trying to hook-up"

"I can replace you like that"

"I love you more than the alcohol....I choose you" (3 days later he was drunk for a 72hrs bender).

While discussing empty bottles I found..."You know I can't remember EVERY place I've hidden bottles when I was drunk!" What makes you more of an alcoholic...that you can't remember where you hid them, that you have that many bottles, or that you feel the need to hide them!!

(After working a 13 hour day and coming home to find him VERY drunk)...
Me: "have you been drinking?"
Him: "no, why would you say that. It hurts my feelings"
Me: "then what is this" (showing him the empty cans he thinks he hid from me)
Him: "those have been there FOREVER"
Me: "What about this reciept from the liquor store for $47? What did you buy?"
Him: "A burrito...no wait....3 burritos"
Me: "and this cost $47?"
Him: (long pause) "No....I got a salad too!"

I have a new one to add:

In discussing me possibly taking the children and leaving him - "If you and the kids leave, there's no way I'd ever stop drinking. If you stay and support me, I'd have a much better chance of getting better."

From my AW:

"I have a disease. You wouldn't expect things from a cancer patient." (I didn't know cancer made you lie, withdraw from your family and friends and be verbally abusive to others)

"You need to get over things or it will make me use again."

"You made me go to rehab because you were mad at me. I could have quit by myself."

"You are so angry. Can we not love each other and support each other?" (said to me after I had just found out she had driven for two hours while high with our son in her car)

"No, I didn't lie or manipulate, I love you."

Have not posted in a while, but still read : )

The best line XABF said to me was...while at a party, I told him I was proud of him for sticking to his sobriety and not drinking. He said...

"Well, I can sit in a corner and be bored with you for the rest of my life, or I can break up with you, meet someone else, have a drink and have fun."

That was the month before the break up. Not funny at the time, hilarious now. I can't believe what I put up with. lol!

Latest quack...

After showing up (crashing) my brother's wedding and my family getting mad at ME for that and then suggesting that he stay (bc the brother getting married was worried about what AH would say about him at work with their mutual friends if he kicked him out)... and AFTER making a scene at the reception and being escorted out he shows up at our house 2 days later and says

"you know, other than like an hour on saturday I thought we had a really great time together this weekend".

I just stared at him and tried not to burst into a) laughter or b) tears.

Then tonight he suggests that we go out to dinner on Friday night and says "I think that going out and having a few drinks together will help me want to focus on recovery". I simply said no and said I had to go and hung up.

I used to think that alcoholism being progressive meant that the amount the A drank increased-- but what I know now is that the progression is also with the amt of delusion and denial there is.

This week's quack:
'Oh, those were Dave's - we had lunch today'.

Except that Dave has been out of the country for the last 2 weeks.

Nod, smile, drive away.

As some of you have been reading we have been trying to get our son into rehab after learning he has been doing heroin. Of course he says he doesn't need rehab and can do it on his own. I spewed coffee when he said this:

"I don't want a medical detox!! I don't want to take drugs that make me walk around like a zombie!!!"

I am loving this thread! Here are a few from my recently estranged alcoholic husband:

1. You have a choice, I can either move out now or I can pay you my half of the bills for the last 3 months. (I was happy to take the $$$ hit on this one.)

2. I only spend about $20 every day at the bar. (Now quack number 1 makes sense.)

3. I'm not the raging alcoholic you think I am. (Oh, so only sober people climb up the stairs on all fours?)

4. How do you know that I won't stop drinking if you have more sex with me? (Uh, just a hunch based on the last decade. I'm sure your ex-wife and ex-GF could weigh in on this, too.)

5. I gave up everything to be with you. (Except your abusive drinking habit.)

6. I'm not as bad as I used to be when you first met me. (True. Back then it was drinking AND drugs.)

7. I go to the bar every day because THEY don't nag me about my drinking.

Quack on, friends!

Called this morning to ask me if I'd seen his empty bottle of anti depressants and told me that the damn pharmacy claims he has no refills left and vented endlessly about what a scam it was to try and force people to see their doctors to get refills...

I suggested that the doctors only give a certain number of refills bc they want to check in regularly with their patients to be sure they're okay and I said that it makes sense to me.

His response: "It would make sense to you..." and then he added "I'm fine- I don't need to have my doctor tell me what I already know".

My reply: Good luck. Click.

This one brought me to tears! Sounds like something my AH would try to pull off.
