Like an overly excited Labrador to a bone. That is what he is like to a bottle of wine, spirits, beer, gin, vodka anything that burns your belly. He drinks like there is no tomorrow. I’ve been begging him to control it for the sake of his very young child. Every time we discuss his addiction, it always turn out into a massive fight..name calling and all. My heart always sinks whenever I see a good husband/ father, as it rubs in my face what my child is lacking.. I’m scared for the life ahead of him. I’m so scared that he will become like his father. I could not count how many times I wanted to leave him. Every time I try, I am stopped by the realisation that I do no want my child to grow fatherless, like I did. My husband is a very different person when he is intoxicated. A meek lamb morphed into a foul mouthed quick tempered beast. I am trying to hold on as long as I could, but living with him is an emotional and mental torture 🙁 Ahhh this is a good way to vent.. nobody will know and we could still maintain a happy family façade)..
