Hi Traciann,

Welcome to Recovery Nation,

First, know that you are not alone. The experience you have shared is shared by many. SA often blame their addiction on their partner "if you weren't depresesed, if you were more accessible etc." and the sad part is that partners often accept that responsibility. Know that his addiciton is in no way your fault. Even though he told you that it didn't begin until the beginning of your relationship, it more than likely goes back farther. If his "hey sexy" was really out of the blue, then it goes to show how ingrained his behaviour is. For now, you are right to remain skepticle about the accuracy of what he has told you so far, or that it is complete but at the same time, it is okay to remain cautiously optimistic. It is great that you realize that you are the only person you can control--that is where your power in life is and this is what the workshop is about, developing and working on those areas of life that you can control. Again, I welcome you to Recovery Nation.

Be well.

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. (Viktor E. Frankl)
