Am I Doing The Right Thing?Please comment on my story after reading.
My boyfriend is an alcoholic along with other members of his family. We have a child together and are own place, but I've spoken to my dad and friends about the trauma I go through trying to maintain a healthy relationship with my boyfriend and son. My boyfriend has 2 DUI's, goes to AA Class and will eventually have to get a breath-alizer installed in the car once he completes the 14week long classes all just to get his driving privileges back. He has no intention of taking the classes seriously to get help with his addiction and he has on several occasions taken the car driven it while intoxicated to go buy more liquor from the liquor store. Rain or shine, if he's drunk and thirsty enough he's gone... and I had to give up the keys and money to prevent him from causing any bodily harm to me and our child and the home. My house has holes in the walls, from him punching through it or slamming doors. I'm down to 3 plates from 7 because he's broken them. I have roaches in my home now because he's thrown and dropped food around the place where I haven't noticed until an infestation had developed in those areas. Two weeks ago I went to my in-laws to confront them about their drinking and got punched in the face twice. Luckily, they were drunk because it didn't hurt as much as I thought a punch in the face would. I didn't fight back instead swore they'd never see their grandchild again nor myself. I'm worried that my boyfriend will eventually get tired of throwing and tossing ob
Lately, I've been planning my exit on this relationship, but its been hard because I still have feelings and the happy memories and the moments that he is sober I'm just a sucker for thinking that maybe things will be different. Or that last drunk spell episode he came out of would be the last... and yet I worry and believe that it won't be the last and that the worse is yet to come in the falling years if I choose to stay, forcing myself to love and please someone with a drinking problem that could careless about what I need in my life to make me happy. I need stability and real happiness. Am I doing the right thing in deciding to leave? A part of me worries so much about how he'll handle the separation and no longer being an active father to his son. Am I doing the right thing for my son and me?
Please comment, thanks!!
