Not coping with husbands drinking by FeelingaloneThank-you for taking the time to reply to my post. Wow 18 years you must be exhausted to say the least. I will have a look for a local Forward Trust meeting, I need something as I am going out of my mind right now churning the same thoughts over and over. My husband is in the denial stage so attending a meeting isn't an option for him, he doesn't have a problem with his drinking. At present we aren't taking, haven't done since Sunday when I was really upset with him and couldn't speak to him but am now angry that he has made no effort with me at all, noticed tonight he has removed his wedding ring so maybe he has made the decision for me.
