    I Need Help

    I met him in a bar! I fell in love with him almost immediately and did not realize that drinking, gambling and bar socializing were his life. Four years , and many, many dramatic scenes later, I am defeated. We shared a commonlaw marriage and now I just got a commonlaw divorce...

    Done

    It took 3 years for me to leave. I enabled, I mothered, I punished, I coddled. Not once did I try to get him professional help. I've thought that maybe I should have tried harder. Now I realize that it would not have mattered what I did. I was not a trained professional. I...

    for over 24 years. My husband was always a drinker but never like in the past 4 years. When he retired from the Service he lost a part of himself and started drinking heavily every night. Of course we would argue and fight whenever I would say something about it but he'd just...

    We have only known each other

    for 3 months. I never believed in love at first sight until I met this man. Things were amazing for the first month. He painted this great picture of himself, but it was a facade. He lied about everything. We lived in different states so it was easy for him to hide it from me...
