making the break
Posted by mclovin on 21 March 2016.
my partner of 7 years has a cocaine addiction. he went for treatment which he completed around 3 years ago but has since relapsed. this month his beloved nan passed away and he has hit rock bottom. he spent £600 last week on it and on Friday he lost his temper and began screaming at my 9 yr old, a row erupted as I tried to defend her and infront of all of our scared kids he had me against a wall and threatened to kill me. I had him removed by police. I have made the decision that he will not come back into the family home as I believe that is the right decision as a parent, however I wonder if it is possible to recover from this and ever be a family again? do I need to accept our relationship is over and grieve for it or do I love and support him from a distance? I feel somewhat stronger already having made the choice not to help him self destruct any longer x
