This is a common tactic of addicts - no matter their choice of addiction. It's based in their refusal to take responsibility for their choices. They turn it around, and blame you for daring to object - and you start to question if you are seeing things clearly.
I grew up in a family where gaslighting was common (emotional and psychological abuse) - you begin to think you're not seeing what you're seeing and that you are the crazy person. You're not, it's the addict's mind games. I recommend the movie "Gaslight" with Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer. Watching it from the outside, might help you to see the ploys used more clearly.
If you have children at home - they will thank you one day.
