Ben Affleck’s life struggle against addiction.

I really feel the stress of it. I could cry, talking about it. I have regrets. I’ve made plenty of mistakes.
His drinking problem had become life or death. They have really worked on their marriage and they just couldn’t do it anymore. These words spread all around.
I never thought I was going to get divorced. I didn’t want to get divorced. I really did not want to be a split family.
So, why couldn’t Jennifer just walk away from Ben? everyone had these questions.
It’s Jennifer garner to the rescue as she descended on my home and stage an intervention.
It was quite upseting for me because it meant I wasn’t who I thought I was, and that was so disappointing and so painful.
and people’s reaction about am I serious about my recovery? was absolute not. They advised to Jenn to set her boundaries. I really don’t want my children to pay for what I did. You’re trying to do right by your kids and you’re trying to protect them. You could tell you still love her when you just talked about her.
There are things that I would love to go back and change.
Jennifer supported me in every step. “You know It’s bad enough absolutely. It’s hard enough.” Jennifer to the paparazzi.
Jennifer always wanted to raise a happy family like her parents. How could she give their kids that feeling and freedom and joy? but after her first marriage fell apart, Jennifer thought she’d missed her chance.
So, when Jennifer fell for Ben Affleck, she finally got her second chance at true love and when they got married a year later, Jennifer vowed she would make it work no matter what. How things are going mommyhood is going. It’s like the most, it just gets better and better for the next decade, Jennifer and Ben were Hollywood’s IT couple. Jennifer helped Ben clean up his playboy image and focus on his work. Ben Affleck, Argo.
I, always and still thank my wife for being the reason I’m standing here, I adore her, I love her so much. She is my everything. I thank her for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases. It’s work, but it is the best kind of work and there’s no one other than Jennifer, I’d rather work with. They looked like the picture-perfect family on the outside but ben’s long battle with sobriety had taken a dark turn.
I started to drink more and more, and it was tough for me to accept that meant that I was an alcoholic. I was fine before, I just need to take a break, I just need to slow down.
Jennifer tried desperately to cling to the broken marriage, but it was too late.
In 2015, the couple announced their separation.
She realized, “I can’t go down this rabbit hole.” She just shut it all out. I was like “you don’t care about me, how could you not care for us?” she’s like, “no, actually it’s opposite. I care too much, it’s too painful.”
But little did we know, it was about to get much worse. what was the hardest thing for you to be honest with yourself about? That I was going to get divorced. I never thought I was going to get divorced, and I didn’t want to get divorced. I didn’t want to be the worst person, I really didn’t want to be a split family.
The collapse of his marriage sent Ben down a dangerous path he was spotted receiving what looked like delivery of beer and whiskey at his home. It quite upsetting for me because it meant I wasn’t who I thought I was, and that was so painful and so disappointing.
Still feeling responsible, Jennifer rushed to Ben’s side Jennifer refused to give up on Ben because she knew her children needed their father.
You can’t buy parenting, you have to get down on the floor and play. Even if you’re a super busy mom or dad, you have to find time for your kids. She lost the dream of dancing with me at our daughter’s wedding, and if you see your kids love someone so purely and wholly then you’re going to be friends with that person.
But no matter how hard she tried, Jennifer couldn’t fix it. I was totally manipulating the rehab. 8:30 this morning I left the treatment center to play a 3 hour game of basketball. Garner reportedly seemed visibly shaken after meeting with me.
After sticking by me for 13 years, Jennifer finally had to let go and that turned out to be exactly what I needed to stand on my own. I really don’t want my children to pay for what I had done. Or to be afraid for me.
I don’t really have a choice. I have to be the man I want to be at this point. I don’t have any more room for failure of that kind.
Without Jennifer to lean on, I was forced to take responsibility. There are things that I would love to go back and change. I have regrets. I’ve made plenty of mistakes, some big, some small. and you said this,
Battling addiction is a life-long and difficult struggle… It’s a full-time commitment. I’m fighting for myself and my family.
Once I had finally accepted my past, I could focus on my future:
Becoming the man Jennifer always believed I could be. I took the last half of the year off and I just got to be a dad. Drive them to school, pick them up, go to the swim meet, that’s where the parenting happens. It’s in the cracks, it’s in the moments where you’re just taking them back from soccer and they say something profound or they talk about how they’re really feeling about something. That’s the joy of it and that’s what I don’t want to miss.
Today, I continue to work on myself while putting my children before anything else and Jennifer may not have the marriage she always dreamed of but her children have the parents they need.
Life doesn’t always turn out exactly the way you want and we’re doing our very best and we’re putting our kids first
