happy days are here again!

i have not been on here in some time. i guess mostly because i'm at work and didn't want anyone to find out what i've been dealing with. my ah was getting real bad. up to a liter of vodka a day. it baffles me that he didn't kill himself yet with booze. anyway, while out of town on business, he decided to take my car out while completely inebriated and hit another car, left the scene and called me..... (i was 800 miles away!). now i'm angry and upset and there's nothing i can do except tell him that rehab is his only choice. he went the next morning and went into a detox program and he's still going to classes 4 times a week. life is different. so much stress has left my body, my home and believe it or not, the dog too! we go out to eat, we garden together. its like being in love all over again. although i do know that a relapse is always a possibility, i will enjoy the moment we are in right now. i'm so proud of him. i know how difficult is has been but he fights it every day and he does it with a smile. i want to thank all of you for all the great advise and great reading i've done on here.... it helped me to see things in a different light.

Congrats on your happiness now, and enjoy it each day. I hope it continues to grow. Thank goodness noone got injured when he drove drunk, i'm glad he learned his lesson.

So happy for you. Thank you for posting about your success. I am quite envious but it gives me hope that one day my AH will become my RAH and we can enjoy all the things we love about each other.
