There Is Light At The End Of The Tunnel
There Is Light At The End Of The Tunnel

Dear Dr. Laura:

Last year, my life and marriage of 20 years were spiraling out of control.  I had an alcoholic husband who needed major help.  I vividly remember you talking to a woman who had called you, complaining about HER alcoholic husband.  Your response spoke directly to me.  Three days later, my husband came home drunk yet again.  This time, I told him he had two options and both were non-negotiable:  one was an inpatient rehab center or two, he had to move out.  I left him alone to think and when I returned back home, he had already sat our three children down and told them that he had a major drinking problem that he couldn't kick on his own, and he needed to seek help.  That night, we all sat on the living room floor, cried, held hands and individually prayed for him and our family.

I'm ecstatic to report that as a family, we just celebrated one year of sobriety!  We spent a wonderful day together.  I've never loved or respected him more than I do now.  He's the man that I always knew him to be.  So thank you, Dr. Laura, for giving me the guidance and strength to know that there can be a light at the end of a very dark tunnel.  Please keep up the good fight by changing one family at a time, because you definitely had a hand in changing mine.

Hugs,

Leslie
