Boozehound Ben Affleck isn't only ditching his addiction, he's also gearing up to dump Lindsay Shookus, has learned exclusively!

Garner, 45, filed for divorce in April, but the split has yet to be finalized.

What’s more, aerial photographs suggest Affleck has moved back into the family home — despite buying a Big Apple love nest with 37-year-old Saturday Night Live producer!

The actor’s luxury car collection was parked in the gated driveway of the family’s Pacific Palisades mansion as recently as November — and his “man cave” has been connected to the main house.

“Ben’s been begging Jen to give their marriage another shot, but she’s refused to promise anything until he’s on the straight and narrow,” an insider said.

Although Radar revealed Garner was on a self-imposed “no sex ban” — which she later confirmed — we caught her on Nov. 19 with marks on her neck similar to love bites!

“Jen would take Ben back, but she needs a lot of reassurance first,” dished a source.

A source claims Garner has agreed to spend the holidays with Affleck and their children in Montana in a “trial reunion.”

A reconciliation wouldn’t surprise friends — despite Affleck's affair with Shookus.

Although Affleck is anxious to reunite with Garner, “she’ll only give him so many chances,” noted a source.

“He’s got to hope he hasn’t blown them all.”
