Trying to Leave
I have been living with my alcoholic boyfriend for 3 1/2 years - together for 5 1/2. Last Friday, I finally got up the courage to ask him to move out. He had finally pushed me too far by hiding how much he was drinking, occasional verbal abuse and financial irresponsibility. My problem now is that he is actually trying to change so he can stay. For the first time in 3 1/2 years he is putting some effort into slowing down on his beer consumption! He is constantly telling me he misses "us", how much he loves me, he won't disapoint me this time, he can do it, begging for just one more chance, just one more week to show me he can do it. I am needing some outside perspective - am I totally crazy for even considering it? The trust is gone but I love him.
