My story is a pretty long one, but I will try and shorten it a little. First off my bf and I have been together for 6 years (almost 7.) Two years ago our relationship took a turn for the worst. We finally decided to live together. He started to hid alcohol and how much he was drinking. He got a DUI, went through detox, and went through rehab. I was hoping once he came back home from rehab everything would work out between us. Not even a month after rehab he started drinking again and hiding it. This time he would drink while I went to work and have it gone by the time I would get back. Finally I found out one night and the next day I moved out. I told him in rehab if you drank again I would be gone.
Only I took him back. He had to move out of our place because he didn't have a job and move back in with his dad. As I had to move back in with my mom. I know I should have left them then, but its hard to leave someone when you really do love them and care about them.
A month after I moved out he went crazy. He was on some new meds. He decided to go kill himself. He didn't and ended up in a psychiatric ward for about a week or so. While he was there our 6 year anniversary came and went.
I was really hoping that was his rock bottom but it wasn't. He came back and was hiding drinking again. I know by now some of you are thinking way is she still with him. Well because I love him and care about him a lot.
I have been lied to, hurt, my trust is broken, I don't know what to believe when he tells me things. We tried couples counseling and it didn't go so well. I then met with that person by myself and she even said I need to leave him. All my friends tell me that and my family stays out of it, but do tell me the want the best for me.
I know I should probably leave him, but he says he is changing and as much as I want to believe that its very hard for me to. I do love him very much yet and care about him. I just don't know what to do.
I'm sorry this is so long, I tried to make it as shot as possible.
