what do you think?

Posted by exhausted on 14 March 2015.

My husband was drinking alot and is now down to 6 bottles of beer sat and sunday and unfortunately one beer each morning(no he does not drive).  The doctor advised me he is only just over the recommended but obviously the morning would be good to stop.
Last weekend after he made a couple of trips to the garage i found 3 cans in there.  he was remorseful as normal said that was the first time (but i am not convinced).
This week i found a can in the trash first he said it had been there for ages then 10 seconds later admitted it was the 4th can of the other 3 i have found.  he has asked me to try and move past it (again) but i just feel i am waiting for the next lie.  In himself he seems so much better than a year ago,enjoying work and seems happy.  Am i expecting to much??  I think i just permanantly think that i am being lied to.


Icarus Trust

This is hard for you to have to deal with and you may find that it would be helpful to talk with someone who understands what you are going through. The Icarus Trust is a charity which supports the friends and families of addicts. We offer a 
service called 'Family Friends' who are trained volunteers with lots of experience of talking to people going through similar problems. It is a free service, it's good to talk and it might help you find a way ahead. 
You can contact us on or visit the website
I hope that you can get some support for yourself. Good luck!
