I am 42 mother of 2 girl 11yrs and a boy 8 yrs old.I had a break down adout 2 yrs ago, I left and went to treatment for alcohol abuse. he took everything thing away from me then, money,car and kidsetc. after some time I came back it has been adout to 2 yrs, empty promises he made to help with house and family has now expired. I have resently started a drug addiction, not in front of kids, and not a daily thing. it gets me through the rough days. I lost my full time job but still working 3 part time ones, trying to contribute to the financial needs, getting too stressfull! I want to leave or have him leave. he is holding my past over me and telling me if he leaves he takes the kids, leaving me with no chance of getting the kids back, he says he is not leaving the kids with an addict. so im finding my self tired, confused and staying so I can be with my kids. im the sole caregiver and have taken time from work to do everything for them, he makes more money then I do! what do I do please help

First of all you need to get clean and stay clean. If he files for divorce and custody you could end up with supervised visitation because by your own admission you are using again. If you want to make the marriage work I would suggest marriage counseling. If he refuses to go i would ask him to be completely honest with you, if he is never going to be able to let go of the past then you will never be happy together in the future.
