Today, I finally found the courage to tell my drug addict husband that I'm leaving him. He sat in his chair, denying using drugs, ever. Right after he said this, he passed out and spilled hot coffee on himself. He then denied spilling the coffee. As I was leaving, he took all of my shoes. FML

Help him... Dont just run away...

It's not running away when you've exhausted every other possibility. Sounds like a shitty situation OP. I hope things get better for you, and maybe with you gone, your husband will see that his addiction has taken everything from him. Accept your shoes. Addiction got those.

Obviously he's going to wear them prancing around the house, with nothing on, but oven mits, singing "Be a man" from the exceptionally badass movie Mulan, all while high as fuck on PCP.

Addicts need to WANT the help. He is a grown man, so if he doesn't step up and admit he has a problem and needs help, then it's not the OP's responsibility to put her own life on hold for him.

#1 from the sounds of it, OP did try to help. Also, from the sounds of it, he doesn't want help. Why stay in a place that doesn't need/want the person that stayed for however long already?

Maybe he's not a scumbag and he just needs help? I have a friend that's the nicest kid ever but he got into drugs. It's so bad but I'm just saying their not all scumbags and this may be a call for help. Tough situation

Druggie: "Hey, want these shoes?"
Kid: "I dunno, are they to support a drug addiction?"
*GI Joe crashes through the wall*
GI Joe: "Remember kids, shoes are an integral part of a druggies life. So just say no!"
Kid: "Gee, thanks GI Joe! Now I know!"
GI Joe: "And knowing is half the battle!

That was a pain to type on an iPod...

Here's the funny thing about rehab. The addict has to want to go, they have sign themselves in. Unless they commit a crime and is court ordered to go.

OP, good luck with your life, and I hope that you leaving is a wake up call for him.
