Havent been here in a year

and nothing much has changed...

My estranged husband continues to go down hill. I didn't even know he could go down hill any further then he already had. He's living back at home with me for a few weeks until I throw his butt out again. He's up all night drinking until he blacks out. He sleeps all day and literally stays in bed all day. He does nothing but drink. He hasn't worked in nearly a year. He gets by doing odd jobs to pay for his narcotic addiction. He house hops and lives in shelters. He's in poor health and his liver is taking a toll now. I know there's no way I can help him. Is there ever a rock bottom?

Nice to *see* you again N21 !

I'm sorry that your AH has chosen to continue down this path.

How are you today? Are you still in counseling?

Hi nightmare, hope you keep coming back here, there's alot of support here if you need it.

As far as him hitting his bottom, he won't hit it if people keep helping him. You say that you know you can't help him, but you are... by giving him a place to drink, do drugs, and pass out every night. The longer he can depend on/use others to take care of him, nothing needs to change in his eyes. Only when they experience the true consequences for their decisions do they hit bottom.

Just my opinion. How is this affecting you? Have you hit Your bottom?
