My husband and I have been married for 8 years. He is an alcoholic and has been controlling and emotionally abusive at times. He calls all the shots. I finally had enough in March when several things finally built up in me and I wanted to escape. I filed for divorce and left him the same day. Due to fear of his reaction, I got the kids and me to my parents house before telling him. We have been separated since. One day he's mad and trying to control and the next he's crying and begging me to try and "work things out" I am having a hard time dealing with him. I know that I don't want to go back but how do I tell him nicely. I want to stay friends with him because of the kids but I don't want him controlling me. Is there a nice way to do this? I really need some courage to tell him that I want out.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
