Hi there. My hubby and I have two beautiful daughter's and another baby on the way. My hubby has struggled with drug abuse for many years and will not stop. I have been told he is done with it and heard I promise and I'm sorry for way too long. Could really use some advice

I think you could take photos of the drugs,or even better film him when he uses it or is high.

I would be suggesting counselling first and if he doesn't want to do that then YOU leave with the children.
Why would he stop if you stay and put up with it? You can take the children and he will have to fight for them. You make sure you have evidence of his drug use though so you can use it against him in court.
You need to give him a reason to stop using. I know it sounds harsh but it's really the only thing that works for most drug addicts.

Yes i do believe he has tried rehab in the past. I have told him how i feel and that i would support him if he goes to rehab. He keeps saying he will and that he will stop but nothing yet:( I have told him that if he wants to keep our family together then some changes need to be made STILL nothing. Sometimes he is so bitter and tells me if i dont like it then leave but he wants to keep our children if i leave. This is getting completly out of hand.

Has he ever done proper rehab in a clinic? Ask him if that would be an option. Tell him how you feel about his drug use. Also let him know you would support him if he would choose to do rehab.
