You are a very strong woman, but do make sure that you take time to heal yourself. I went to Alanon and some personal counseling after I left him because of the emotional damage that this relationship had caused. I got better and now it is hard to even imagine that I lived is such a draining situation for so long.
Good luck to you.

Over the years he has struggled with a drinking problem and was given the option of having a life with me or a life with alcohol. He chose me and was doing fairly well. There were a few bumps along the way, but we dealt with them and made it through. Well, he has chosen the alcohol over me for the last time and after I told him we were done, he ended up going out drinking again and this time he had the kids with him, so he was driving with them!!! Things starting getting pretty bad and home, and in the end, after I walked up to the hospital for my night shift, I called the RCMP and had him arrested! My kids are at my parents place and I will probably be staying there for awhile.
I am so sorry this has happened to you and your kids . It sounds like you are making the right decision for you and your family and I applaud your strength and courage.
As for your ex-DH - just remember that no one can get sober for someone else - no matter how much they love them or want to. for your kids sake i would encourage him to get sober for himself so he can be some sort of father and hopefully a good role model down the line. addiction is so scary and tragic but unfortunately it is such a personal battle.
as for you - your kids are lucky to have someone with such a good head on her shoulders - if you need anything we are all here for you! Alyssa
