Lost husband to alcohol by MaryPoppins23Hi Rubyjune Thank you so much for your response. Your story resonates so much to mine, especially that you worry his drinking will escalate with you not there but that you can no longer cope with it. This is exactly the position I was in. To be fair, I think my husband was way beyond help a long time ago. My consolation is that although I couldn't live with him I never gave up on trying to help him. I have amazing support at home from family and friends and am just trying to focus on the positives of our life and also the future. There is no way I will let this dreadful addiction ruin my life as well as his. Wishing you all the best in this struggle.
