I've been married to my husband 4 twenty years... He's my everything. Last christmas my husband overdosed on Cocaine. I then found out he had been doing cocain our entire marriage. He told me if I left him He'd OD. Iv stayed but its becoming Verry hard to live with. I feel lied to and weak. What should I do?

Tell him if he doesn't stop, you will leave. He's an addict who needs rehab and he has no right threatening to hurt himself if you leave. That's not love. Hard to believe that after 20 years, you had no clue he was an addict. Get him help and you some help also.

Oh sweetie! This is a hard one! He needs help but he also needs love and support. I think if he understands the idea of seeing you are kids high on the stuff he would hate it or the idea of you guys ODing on it might kill him. Letting him know you will support him and stay with him while he tries to get clean will help. But something has to change. He needs to think what it would be like to be in you're shoes.
