Hello, I think its an issue that he has with him self , and will not realise how he herts u and the kids as he needs this to self medicate , so sorry for this happening to u, there is a book called u can heal ur life it may help u x
Hi. Id avise to look into the 12 step programme. Its a programme for all addictions. If you google narcotics annonymous, your local group meeting will be listed. Good luck. I have been there being the one with the addiction. So i know how devastating the affects can have on loved ones. Good luck. Xx
I wouldnt be too honest. The less they know the better but at the same time, they need to know that its not their fault. Maybe explain what addiction is as briefly as you can and how it is an illness. Good luck. Xx
Thanks for the advice. This isn’t the first time he has left through his drinking, I have explained to the kids about addiction and how it is an illness. I do have problems with understanding though why he hasn’t bothered contacting his kids for 7 weeks now and think about why it is doing to them! Wouldn’t knowing he had them make him think about trying to stop and get well?
