Posted by Shamrock73 on 11 March 2015.
I've been married for 18 years I'm now 42 . We worked hard and established a good business , my 2 youngest went to private school we had luxury holidays I thought we had made it then in the last 3 years alcohol became more and more apparent ? Florid he wanted to sit I the local bar I wanted to hit the rides with the kids ! Local business meetings , Xmas parties I started to see he couldn't control his behaviour . Wanting to drink a small shot in a morning ! Horrified me I was having breakfast he was having a drink ? In short he went the priory . 16 grand for a month it did nothings ! After 2.weeks he was back drinking , ive left my home, lost my car , everything all through vodka ! Ive lost a man I love to drink ! I'm now with my kids surviving on benefits it's soul destroying and when i try to take the kids he's drinking yet I have the calls at 3 am I will change lol !off him . I hope he gets better
