    My husband was always behind me during my recovery and he still is. He was my strength. It is to the point now that we can have a bottle of vicodin in the house and I don't touch it. My son broke his ankle and hubby had a severe inner ear infection and they both were prescribed vicodin. I never touched those pills, but 3 years ago I would have been all over it. They sit in the medicine cabinet as a reminder of my sobriety. He says he doesn't have to count them because he knows they're safe.

    I just wish that all husbands were like him. It really sucks that he doesn't truly understand your addiction. I think that maybe my husband relates to my addiction because he had problems in his past, not with drugs/alchohol, but psychological problems that I can't really get into on here. Maybe if your husband could relate, he would be out there working. It is important for you to see him working, even if it is a minimum wage job, or a night stocker at walmart... it means more than the money he is bringing home doesn't it? It does.

    I hope the best for you and please come back and type to us if you need anything. In helping others it helps me... it puts my sobriety in check.

    you say he needs to get ANYTHING for now!

    many jobs will only pay minimum money, so much that entire families (including the children) work there just to keep the house.
    will haveing one person doing such a job really make any difference to you.
    will it really even go as far as to pay the rent!

    what i am saying here is be carfull how far you go when you use the word "anything"
    focus more on getting a job that can sustain you

    I have to disagree with this. For him to have a job, ANY job, would be helpful in more than one way. While it is important for him to get the highest paying job that he can, I believe that any job for him would be good for the household, their relationship, his self esteem and her recovery.

    Having been through a similar situation, out of work husband, recovery, etc... I know that if he had a job, it would benefit the family with more than just money.
