My Sunday

My sunday was horrible! It had started on Sat night with the bf being drunk and me being a b!tch. I was verbally abused most of the night because I wouldn't let him take my car to get more alcohol. 
Sunday morning he woke up in a very bad mood and started yelling at me and threatened to throw me outta the house by my hair.  I told him I would voluntarily leave as he was in my face screaming at me. I called the police in search of hoping to get the number for CASA (Citizens Against Spousal Abuse).  My children and I could have been escorted there by the police or I could drive to the station and CASA would come get us.  This was very frightening for me because he barged in the room yelling at me again and asking who I was talking too. I was being stupid and over reacting for calling the police. I explained I had no place to go but I had to get out of there. He just walked away saying I was stupid.
I began to pack and had my girls packing, we were going to get everything we could in trash bags and leave.  That is when reality hit him!! He then realized I was really leaving and wasn't just saying I was going to. He became very emotional and told me he would do anything that he could to save us! I told him his alcohol was to blame for 99.9% of our problems, suprisingly...he agreed!! He made me the promise he would do everything he could to stop. I believe him as he is not one to break promises. To much appreciation, he did not even drink a full beer yesterday!! This is very unusal and on a typical weekend he would have been drunk and passed out by 7pm.
Maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel!! My afternoon and evening were fabulous, I had a sober bf that I could carry on a conversation with and he would remember it the next morning! I told him over and over just how proud I was of him!
Please keep us in your prayers that he will keep up the good work. If he relapses and it starts again, I will have no choice but to leave.

Addicts will always manipulate, and lie. They are addicts. He needs help, he needs therapy, and needs to be in AA or some other addiction treatment. if not it has to end.

Aquarius...This was from February and I have since left him. I took all I could fit in my car for me and my kids and walked out.
