i've lived with my boyfriend a year. when we first started dating we discussed the fact that he was an alcoholic and how he was dealing with recovery. about six months ago he slipped up and got drunk. and since then it's just gotten more and more freaquent. about the first of may he got so drunk he beat the crap out of me. i pressed charges. after he sat in jail long enough to sober up he pled guilty and they released him on the condition that he checked himself into rehab by a certain date. he promised it would never happen again and that he would do rehab and get all of his crap straight. at this point i don't know if he really ment what he told me or if he just told me what i wanted to hear. since he got out of jail the drinking has only progressed. i finally packed my stuff and moved out. he's a mean drunk and although he's not hit me again i think knowing i'll throw his butt in jail has been the only thing that's stopped him. now he's using me moving out as his excuse for getting drunk. he says i don't love him because i left. he doesn't seem to get the reason i left. and since i left i've found out so many lies he's told me. i've discovered so many lies that i am questioning if i really love him or all the lies he's told me. i'm to the point of giving up and walking away from him. i don't think he wants to change and i'm so tired of being heartbroken all the time. it's been nothing the last month and a half except fighting and crying ( for me anyway). so the discussion i want to start is... is it deserting hin or is it taking care of me?
