I strongly suggest you look up Nar-Anon and Al-Anon in your telephone books and call them.
Addiction/alcoholism is indiscriminate and affects male/female old & young.
I have been in recovery over 25 yrs and seen many folks come into AA and NA in their later years and embrace The 12 Steps.
The great folks at Al/Nar-Anon will guide you in the best direction.
You have to get outside help... both you and your spouse. You are both affected by addiction.
I wish you the best.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

AA's HOW IT WORKS:
Copy & paste www.aa.org/assets/en_US/p-10_howitworks.pdf
NA's HOW IT WORKS:
--- driven by a hundred forms of fear, self-delusion, self-seeking, and self-pity.
---there are those too who suffer from grave emotional and mental disorders but many of them do recover if they have the capacity to be honest.
... I need AA more than it needs me.
--- I fight recovery tooth and nail....
I'm not used to being sane, it just doesn't seem natural.
...... According to the great spiritual teachers, ignorance does not result from what we don’t know; ignorance results from what we think we do know.
---Some think that 2+2=5 and believe it.
Some know that 2+2=4 and can't stand it.
--- I didn't have a very happy childhood
but I sure am having a long one !
---Dry since 1989
working daily on getting/staying SOBER.
---If you want to drink, that's your business
...If you want to quit, that's AA's business.
... Tell me, I'll forget;
... Show me, I'll remember;
... Engage me, I'll understand.
---Most problems are psychological.
Most solutions are spiritual .

nah, too much emotion is nonsense. straight up. you can have all the emotions you want, but sooner or later youre going to have to shut up about it.
I thought the whole piece was actually funny. Maybe it was because it was too emotional. Maybe because its written by someone who hasnt done drugs. And if they have- they werent just smoking pot everyday.
