I need some suggestion

Unread postby clueless » Sun Aug 08, 2010 10:41 am

My husband has been off of crack since July 23.. cold turkey. Yesterday he told me that the thought of using entered into his mind "You can get just one hit she won't know" after this thought came to him he had his work partner drive him straight home...

I just sat and listen to him tell me how hard it was to fight that voice..
any suggestion?

HE SHOULD GET HELP. IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO DO THIS BY HIMSELF. It's not as simple as not just using. There are underlying issues, he has to deal with. SEEK OUT NA MEETINGS. ALANON MEETINGS FOR YOU and other family and friends.

It IS hard to clean up and really hard to stay clean on your own. I would encourage him to get help- get to some NA meetings and talk to people who have been through exactly the same process. Then do what they suggest.

It's gonna be a day to day fight for the rest of his life. Is he getting help?
