You can tell him that as much as you love your dh (if you want to say that part, or, if not, then say As much as you know that your ds loves him and wishes that you all were together), right now, Daddy is having some problems making good choices, and that his bad choices are making things unsafe for you and ds, and that your number one priority is to make sure that you all are in a safe and healthy environment. Tell him that right now, his Daddy is having some problems with drugs and with alcohol, and that hopefully, one day, he will be able to beat those addictions, but in the meantime, it's not good for you or your ds to be around that. (at 10, this could be a good time to throw in a - this is why drugs are bad, because they can make people forget about their loved ones, and it can ruin lives and families...)
gl - and (((hugs))) to you and your ds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
