Default Re: Welcome to our Substance/Alcohol Abuse Support Group

I am having a real hard time with my husband. He sneaks and does cocaine or something thinking I don't know. It is white powderery looking stuff in a little tie twisted bag. He does not snort it but takes it through his mouth. He has been doing this for years. At least one day a week, he is sick, talks out of his head, has even had a fever at times, and screams like he is in pain. Then, it will go away for a few days. He acts senile a lot. He can't stand without rocking back and forth. He drools sometimes and does not even know it. Does anyone know what this is? Is it drugs or mental?

I just joined and I am trying to stop taking pills for courage. my family is worried about me. I don't know if I am "addicted" but I know that it helps me to feel like I fit in.

Welcome, I believe having a place like this to go to and share is a big part of recovery. I also battle with a mean case of depression, enhanced with GAD, (just to keep me on my toes), and an addiction to alcohol, cocaine, and pills. But, I took a one year cake at the end of August, work the steps, have a great Sponsor, and reach my hand out to as many new comers, as possible. I'm also looking for a new job and taking classes for my Masters. Staying involved with things that inspire you, getting outside and taking a walk, and looking at the world with gratitude are good jumping off points.
I look forward to hearing more about your experience, strength, and hope.

Although we renamed the forum to "Addictions," this is still the place to come and discuss alcoholism, drinking problems, or a substance abuse issue.
