What Do I Say?

My husband has been addicted to pain meds for over a year, but never admitted to it.
I new but had to have proof because I know he would continue to lie. He has been clean for 2 weeks now BUT
After a disagreement 2months ago he left while I was furuious at home. A friend of his came over and said"hows things"?
I blurted out that my husband was fat, had no teeth and was a liar.
His friend just told him today and i was sorry and said sorry. But now I feel like I hurt his spirit.
What can I say to make it better for him?

First of all, we can all make mistakes. Your husband needs kindness and understanding. I recommend going to a medical doctor with a reputation of having a good bedside manner. In him, You will find a caring physician who can recommend steps to get away from the addiction. Follow these steps. It wont be easy, but it is necessary. You obviously care for Your husband or You would not have blurted out those things to his friend. His friend is trying to intercede for your husband, yet this problem should only be shared with a caring physician, who can get your husband started on the right approach. Both You and Your husband need to work on forgiveness of each other and of yourselves.
I hope that You have a belief system in GOD. Prayer is a wonderful avenue that we have for help. Get started today on this.
