No idea how I got here, feeling a bit lost :( (but found myself again a happy ending) - Part 32

    He was released at midnight charged with driving with excess alcohol - could have been a lot worse. He admitted and shows true remorse. I know that he is ashamed and embarrassed the first thing he did was go wake my son and hug him and apologise to him.

    I told him he needs help and left him the number for csmt (they do treat alcohol addiction too). I went to work; he has called them himself and made appointment. I am proud of him for that. Physically he could stop drinking tomorrow with no issues other than grumpiness which is why to him he didn't see it as an issue. Last night he reassessed that.

    It's not going to impress me, and im not turning my back on him if he gets help. It could have been worse and if my son had been hurt this would be a different story.

    I'm not going to grief him, he will beat himself up more than I can!!!

    Anyway just on lunch. 2 weeks since I last used today!

    Thanks for being there when I needed u both x

    Good news, Cee! I knew you'd come through it. You're a tough cookie. ;)

    Glad that your other half is so keen to get help with your Community Team. He may also find some help looking around our R&A Alcohol section. How is your son today? Is he ok?

    Good on ya Cee xx

    That seems insanely stressful! I can't imagine dealing with something like that right now! Yay on you for not using it as an excuse to use!

    And you are absolutely right, we are better at beating ourselves up than anyone else ever could! Way to support your partner even while not supporting his actions.
