From a meth addict's perspective: Please KICK US OUT!

From a meth addict's perspective: Please KICK US OUT!
I've seen a lot of wives on the board talk about ways to cope with their addict husbands. For me being the wife and the addict I wanted to share what my perspective on this is.
I realize what helps me the most is when my husband doesn't fall for my bullsh*t.
I want him to question me and not give in to my lies and excuses so easily.
I want him to give me a hard time if I come home late. I want him to have phone numbers and addresses of the places I go so that I know he can check on me at any time.
He took my name off our checking account and so now if I need money I have to ask him and if I need gas for my car I don't want him giving me cash. I want him to insist on him using his ATM card because I don't trust myself with money.
When he found out I relapsed he didn't just let it slide he's going to leave me for awhile which now pushes me harder to maintain my sobriety.
No spouse should have to baby an addict and cater to their every demand. We addicts need to help our spouses financially and emotionally and if we're just using, lying, cheating, unemployed and being unproductive then our spouses should not have to
PUT UP WITH IT!

Don't fall for our excuses if we don't go to rehab or NA.
Insist that we do or KICK US OUT!

I wish I would have! I left and he stayed and I ended up losing many of my things, since they were sold for drug money...

There is a lot more to my story, I still got caught up in the drama after I kicked him. You know how it is. Only last weekend he turned up on my doorstep (remember he moved on with that new "host" skank).. a month of silence and then he appears.....hmmmmm what a pathetic sight I had to look out.

He came to me as a "friend" hmmmm  ...he had no one else to turn to in his words.

I felt nothing but compassion for him.
