I certainly wish it was as cut and dry as simply getting the addict some help. Literally, I tried everything and often things were turned around to somehow be my fault. I honestly thought I was crazy and would continue to believe this if it weren't for the marriage councilor, who helped me see that none of this was my fault. I love my husband very much and will always support him and help him to become sober if he so wishes, but I cannot sacrifice myself and my children. I know that addiction is difficult, but often people forget how hard an addiction is on everyone else surrounding that person.
