Verbal Abuse And Drinking
My husband grew-up in business and thinks he should do the same. We have owned three businesses in 11 years. Selling them due to loss. With this I have gone though verbal abuse, which I started drinking. I don't know how much longer, I can go on with this daily. Do I stay or leave?

This is not a "do I stay or leave" question or answer. You should probably start out with going to counselling, either alone or with your husband. Ask Father God what to do. He does say, "I am the Lord your God who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way in which you should go." "I will council you with my eye upon you." Go to God and pray every day and ask Him what you should do, He knows you best and He will guide you with love and care.

If you would like help to stop drinking, attend a few AA meetings. I am in recovery, as I had a drinking problem for a very long time. E-mail me if you need to. madia3794

I went through the same thing only my husband was the alcoholic and was verbally abusive. I think verbal abuse is worse than physcial, with physical abuse the bruises go away but the mind has a hard time giving up the mental abuse. The only way that I was able to cope was through prayer and regular church attendance. Without the Lord and Al-Anon I couldn't have made it. Go to AA and maybe your husband will go to Al-Anon.

lois,I have first hand experience.my 2nd wife was even worse with some 6 different ones.first a total of nearly 60 thousand dollars over a 12 year period .and every time she got depressed and blamed me and left.But the last time she left I would not let her move back in. sometimes its better to live alone.just my opinion ,for my circumstances.

**With this I have gone though verbal abuse, which I started drinking. I don't know how much longer, I can go on with this daily.**
I can't tell if you mean you can't go on with his verbal abuse, or you can't go on with your own drinking.
You can't control what comes out of his (or anyone else's mouth), but you CAN control what goes into your own.

Sure! You can pray to the "Higher Power" of AA.

Please start to work on yourself instead of concentrating on your husband. Alcoholics Anonymous is a wonderful place to start with overcoming a drinking problem. Wait before making a decision on leaving or staying. Blessings to you.

Lois...I will be praying for you. God can help you through this. You do not need alcohol because God WILL be there. As far as whether or not to stay with your husband, first you need to get right with the Lord and God WILL help your marriage. Please seek Godly counsel for yourself.
