Welcome Who67,

First of all, congratulations on being clean 4.5 years! Amazing work. I am glad you are getting family counselling. You might also want to consider couple's counselling as this will help you and your wife work together more cooperatively as parents and perhaps work towards resolving some past hurts. 

How are you taking care of yourself during this stressful time?

I am a 50 year old sex addicted alcoholic father clean for 4.5 years (from alcohol) with a 21 year old marijuana addicted daughter who runs the show. I have tried to kick her out several times only to be undermined by my wife. My wife says she cannot kick her out her conscience will not allow her to do it. My 17 year old son is also addicted to pot thanks to his sister and is in jeopardy of not finishing high school. Because of my history of alcohol abuse and sex addiction I have no respect from my son or daughter even thou I am in recovery and go to AA and SLAA meetings regularly. My son is depressed and has been suicidal in the past and recently left home briefly stating in a letter that he was leaving home and not to come after him or call police and that he would be OK. My family life is affecting my sobriety and I thought it would be OK if I got into the marijuana with the kids and for a while my daughter and I actually got closer. But when my wife found out all hell broke loose. I am now seeking family councilling thru lifeworks and waiting for a councillor to call.
