I really feel so sorry for you.. he needs help, until he seeks help and admits the problem things will spiral out of control. I am going through the same sort of thing, addiciton is so hard to deal with when youre the person thats meant to be 'supporting' the addict... its mentally draining and it does make you so paranoid and it does ruin relationships. I am so worried I will end up married like you and it will get worse.

Sending love and hugs to you x

My husband had been doing the exact same till recently. After many years of denial he finally admitted he needed help,went to see a doctor and he got referred to a clinic that can help.

There's still along way to go but I wanted to let you know that there is hope and one day your husband might take that step too.

I understand what you're going through and hope things change for you too.

I only recently started to tell friends and family what's going on and it was such a relief to tell someone.

I also just joined this website today looking for help.Hopefully we can help and support each other.

Take care x
