My hubby will do anything to get his hands on drugs – including steal from me

DEAR DEIDRE: MY husband searches every corner of the house for money to fund his drug habit.

He is like a beggar looking behind the sofa, in drawers, even my handbag.

He has pawned my jewellery in a loan shop and I have had to hide my belongings where he won’t find them.

I’m 41 and he is 43. We’ve been together for 15 years and have three kids.

My family tell me to leave him. I have shared my problems with his family too.

They say they will speak to him but nobody does.

DEIDRE SAYS: Tell your husband you love him – assuming you still do – but are worried sick about how his drug habit is affecting all of you.

You cannot solve this for him, nor can his family. Your husband must take responsibility for his addiction but say you understand he needs support to succeed.

Say he can access this through the drugs information service Frank (talktofrank.com, 0300 123 6600). If he doesn’t act, though, you must consider leaving him because living with addiction is very damaging for children.
