Att.: Should I or shouldn't I

I am in a similar situation to you. My husband is an alcolholic with bi-polar, we have 2 small children. I cannot count on all my fingers and toes how many times my husband has "realised" and acknowledged he has a problem and promises to get help and never drink or be abusive again (he has only been physially violent once - once too many though). He always says he is sorry, promises to never do it again and always breaks his promises. There are very few things in life that are certain - but one thing certainly is, that is that they will always break their promises. I was told that the stats say that we have a 99% chance of making it work! (not that I am a believer in stats, I believe we set the stats). I have not left my husband yet but am in the process thereof, I still wish that he would decide to fight for his family, I am just sooo tired of defending my children (verbally and emotionally) from their father). I would really like to start a support group for women especially those with children in my area - the western cape ( I have been married for almost 11 years and feel that I have a lot to share). If there is anyone interested, I will forward my email address.
