8 Years

I have been married for 8 years my husband and I have separated twice due to his drinking. After a two year separation and many promises of change we recently got back together again. It's been 6 months and it is more of the same. I now have anxiety attacks when he picks me up from work because I am afraid he will be drunk. He has driven drunk many times and My life was endangered as well as others. Most times he manages to pick me up sober but even then I can't feel normal in the car. We have only one car. He's with his drunk buddies most of the time. He totally ignores me and my feelings. He has been to inpatient treatment twice. And ended up hospitalized during the last treatment he left the facility and ended up in the emergency room. I am getting tired and depressed.

You need to leave again - stay separated and then decide what to do from there. You are blessed with a job. Get a friend to help you move - all will be better. An alcoholic doesn't remember the pain they cause.
