... overdosed 2x's and we split for 2 1/2 yrs because of this. Our kids are happy with us together and they've been through too much already , we all have. i'm not sure what to do to help him, or if i should even keep on trying! He gets the pills free whenever he wants and thats something that i've tried to put a stop to but it's out of my control. I understand addiction and how out of control it feels. something terrible usually happens to make you realize you have a problem.It's not the problem that i can't understand it's how to deal with it, and help my family. is there anyone with a similar problem that has found anything to help?
