My hubby has been sleeping for over twelve hours. Should I be worried?

He's always had a weird sleeping schedule. He told me one time he slept for three days when he was detoxing, but I've never seen him sleep this much. Should I be worried?

  • He used to do drugs but not anymore. Now he just smokes and drinks and he only eats one meal a day. I try to get him to eat breakfast and lunch but he doesn't.

  • Are you sure he has not relapsed? My dh has suffered from drug addiction for over 9 years he has been clean for a long time but when he first got clean he relapsed a few times and when he was coming down again he would sleep for days

  • Well he's relapsed with alcohol because he's an alcoholic too but I know for a fact he hasn't done any drugs.

  • Are you with him 24 hours a day? I am not trying to be mean, But addicts lie all the time.
    Does he go to meetings?

    if he is sleeping because he relapsed i would just let him sleep there is not much more you can do.

  • As much you want to believe your husband you can't fully trust an addict. I'm also not trying to be mean but I have 2 cousins who are bad addicts and they lie non-stop. Addicts don't care who or what they hurt.

  • I have been Married to my dh for 17 years we have 7 kids and he has struggled on and off for like I said 9 years. Trust me Addict = Liar I am sorry but it's true.

    It took a while for me to admit that was how he was.
    Just as it is hard for an addict to admit their problem it's just as hard for us (the ones who love them to admit who they really are.
