I have been dating my boyfriend for about a year and a half now, we just bought a house together and I don't know what to do. When I first met him, we drank alot and went to a lot of parties. About a year into the relationship he had been hangin with the guys while I was at home all day and came home stumbling drunk. He did not like what I had to say about that and ended up being physically abusive to me. I know I should have left him then, but I didn't. I made him promise me that he would limit his drinking and not get so drunk, he said he would and begged me for another chance...so I did. Well that didn't last. Every now and then he would mentally tear me apart by calling me names and making me feel really low about myself when he was drinking. And recently after a wedding party we were staying in a motel room ( we had both been drinking) and something made him just snap and he ended up shoving me to the floor and hit me. Fortunately, his family was staying in the same motel so I went to them in fear and to get away from him. After a couple of days apart he promised me that he would quit drinking in all. I accepted his promise, letting him know that him quitting alcohol would be the only way we could be together. I told him to do it for him and us, not because I told him to. Well, two weeks went by he went golfing, and came home and I could tell he had been drinking. He told me he had one beer, but I could tell it was a lot more than "one" beer. He still to this day won't tell me the truth. He told me he was sorry, and it wouldn't happen again. I want to believe him, but I don't know if I can. He does not think he has an alcohol problem, but everyone else does. What are my options to help him to quit and to make our relationship work?? I know I should probably leave him, but he only treats me bad when he is drinking. When he is sober he is so good to me. Is there any hope that he can quit drinking on his own....I need help!!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
