Allforcnm, he has participated in therapy quite a bit but I do know (because we did joint sessions occasionally), that he was not honest with the therapist. It was all very frustrating because if you are not going to be honest, they can't help you. It may do him some good now if he's finally able to be honest with them and himself.
Brokenheartwife, you hit the nail on the head with your comments which is why I keep trying to direct him to his sponsor (he does have one as of 2 weeks ago). He makes comments from time to time regarding things people have told him and they are the very things I have told him for years but he didn't want to hear it from me and got defensive. This is when I started seeing the light and knowing I was not the one to 'help' him any longer.
Footwork and time....so true.

Ugh...typo....should read...

...I think one reason that A's need a sponsor is because A's usually don't accept personal responsibilty that well, so if their significant other is " calling them on BS" then it just leads to arguments. However, if a sponsor pulls the BS flag, the A will likely respond better.

At least it wasn't an iPhone autocorrect error, then you could have been really embareassed.



Your friend,

In the beginning, my husband tried to talk to me a lot about his recovery and I tried to talk a lot about mine too. We actually had to take turns sharing about our meetings.

Today, we both remind each other to stay on our sides of the street.

He loved a saying I read here and shared with him. "Hands of the addict" and its something he still says today - if he needs to - with a wink and a smile. And I say "hands of the codie." lol
