First off I commend you for willing to give him an ultimatum in the first place, not many people are strong enough to do that. And given the latest incident, I do not blame you at all for making the decision to have him arrested ~ that took a lot of courage and strength on your part. And for me at least, the fact that he drove with the children in the car while being intoxicated is teetering the fence of unforgiveable. I know alcohol is a tough personal demon, but to risk hurting your children must have you zipping through emotions of sadness and anger all at once.
The fact that he did that should serve as a wakeup call to him that he has a huge problem that needs to be dealt with ASAP. First and foremost I think you should do as you've been doing, and think about yourself and the well-being of your kids. Speaking as a mother I know there is no greater love that what you feel for your children ~ you are so right in doing what it takes to protect them. They need a strong mother like you, so keep your head up hon.
Gosh, I don't know what else to say except to stay strong and know that we are all here for you to vent or confide in.

Remember to take care of yourself as you go through this.
Wishing you well.

I myself was in a relatinoship where my boyfriend was drinking 3 pints of 100 proof vodka a day...if not more, I wasn't with him 24-7. It took him pinning me to a wall and punching the wall beside my head to leave him. He had never been abusive physically but the mental abuse wasn't enough for me to leave him. I dealt with it for almost three years.
I commend you for standing up for you andyour children. Unlike everybody else I think your kids come first and then you, but take of everybody. I wish you the best.
