    • 247 W: Maybe he needs to get into a treatment programme right?
    • 248 J: Well, but he does that.
    • 249 W: He's in a treatment programme but he still abuses?
    • 250 J: No, he runs, he does the Rational…
    • 251 W: Who cares? He still….he's still abusing substances. Now my point is to you, he's asking you to make a commitment - big commitment to leave your kids- don't you also have the right to actually ask for something from him?
    • 252 J: I would say I do, but then we just did this great big talk with…nobody has any rights.
    • 253 W: I'm not talking about rights in the absolute sense, I'm talking about right in the sensible sense.
    • 254 J: Since he's asking me to make a commitment I can feel okay with asking him to make a commitment.
    • 255 W: Yeah. It's a commitment in … I mean if you were … if I was in this situation with you and you were … I would say to you ''I need to know that you're going to be off these blasted drugs for a decent amount of time, and that the first time that we have an argument, you're not going to rush back and take the drugs. I don't need to know….but this is my bottom line, hadn't you better ask yourself, what kind of commitment am I going to be asking from him to do before I make this leap.
    • 256 J: Mm mmh. That's a very, very good…idea. Very good.
    • 257 W: Okay.
    • 258 J: Very good. I feel really good about that.
    • 259 W: Okay. But don't forget the other stuff, because when you go back, and actually make a decision, lets suppose he's clean for a year, he could still go off and have the drugs a day after you go with him. You need to be prepared for that. You need to deal with all these other issues we're talking about. But it seems to me as if you are willing to give up a whole big life to a man who takes substances, you know, as soon as he gets angry. You see.
    • 260 J: Uh huh.
    • 261 W: Now, you know….I mean…
    • 262 J: And he is in debt big time, and my husband …you know…has got a fair amount of money.
    • 263 W: Yeah exactly.
    • 264 J: That's another big thing.
    • 265 W: Maybe you also need to ask him…that again, the other thing is that maybe I need to see evidence that you are being more responsible with your money. Is living with somebody who's responsible important to you?
    • 266 J: Yeah I think so.
