  1. It does feel like falling off a cliff. He keeps telling me he didn’t cheat on me and him calling escorts met nothing to him. That he was on a binge of coke and alcohol and never realized how bad drinking effected our relationship. I wish I could snap my fingers and realize I deserve better.
  2. It’s been a month and I still can’t get over him. What is wrong with me?... I’m fine for a couple of hours and then I miss him like crazy. I keep thinking what he did isn’t abuse. We had so many good times too. From what I wrote what part about it is a abuse.. the name calling and the hole in the wall? I’m not trying to sound stupid but I can’t get out of this ty mind frame I have right now.
  3. I didn’t just post on another forum. I’ve posted on about 4 different ones asking the same thing. I’ve also asked friends what they would do. It’s over and I’m not going back to him. There’s a part of me that wanted justification to make sure I was doing the right thing. I made the mistake of unblocking him a few days ago and I think him apologizing and saying all of these things made me think I was partly to blame. I realize I have issues because I think this behavior is acceptable. So many people seem to like him and it always made me feel that maybe I was the problem. A good friend told me that alcoholics are master manipulators so maybe that’s why. He told me last night that I wasn’t perfect either and I was giving him a lot of grief the past month prior to this. Which I probably was. I wanted him to pay rent on time, and start saving money. I could of brought it up to him in a better way. He also said he wasn’t abusive to me. He said some of the things he did while we were fighting were abusive but it doesn’t mean he is abusive. I’m almost confident I will be getting an abortion but I do feel extremely guilty about it. It has nothing to do with him. Just the fact that I put myself in this situation to have to make this choice. I know I was treated bad. I just wish I knew the right tools to get over this and be happy again. I feel really lonely.
  4. That’s terrible I’m sorry he said that to you and had to go through that. He did tell me that I knew he was an alcoholic when I met him. I didn’t realize the extent of it and didn’t know about the cocaine. I just thought he liked to drink sometimes. I’m not trying to come off as an idiot. My parents fought a lot growing up and broke up when I was young. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a healthy relationship. I know this should be as easy as 1 + 1. If I tell anybody this story they will say it’s abuse. I keep thinking I should have been nicer to him the past month because he was trying and I was being mean trying to get over everything he’s said to me.
  5. I know it’s not the same. I don’t know why it’s so hard to let go. I have this glimmer of hope because he’s apologizing and going to AA that maybe he will change.
  6. I’ve been with my boyfriend for 8 months. I’m currently 10 weeks pregnant. I realized he had an alcohol problem half way in. I could never understand why he would get so angry over little things. It was like a completely different person. He’s thrown hangers, clothes a book and an empty bottle at me. I’ve always tried to justify these things by saying the liquor bottle was plastic, the book he threw next to me. I’ve tried to justify him calling me a , a tweeker ( I have no idea why he would call me this. I do really good at work and work hard and I like to keep my house clean. So whenever I would clean or move a picture or bring work home he called me a tweeker). I do feel like an idiot because he low keyed moved in without us ever talking about it. We discussed it but it was never set it stone. He never offered to pay anything until I found out I was pregnant 2 months ago. Anytime I wanted to spend the night alone he would flip so I just stopped saying it. I think I become codependent. My self esteem felt so weak after all of the names and yelling. I don’t think I was perfect at all. I’m trying to explain this in a way so it’s not all blamed on him. I just don’t remember doing anything to deserve these things. So he promised he would stop drinking. He claims he went 2 weeks and then went to a friends house. I had him take a breathalyzer. Maybe it was wrong but I needed to know because of the monster hes capable of turning into when he is drinking. He lied over and over again even after failing. Then finally admitted it the next day while at a friends house drinking. He apologized and said he went 2 weeks already and didn’t want to give up having a couple of beers with friends. And I understood this. I was so conflicted. His dad is an alcoholic and I just didnt know what or how to react. He decided to not come back for a week. Everyday he told me he didn’t want to see me, that I all I do is . He said horrible things. He wouldn’t answer his phone and would only text. So fast forward a whole week. He decides he wants to come back. He told me the whole week he was depressed thinking of me and at his friends house. He let me see his phone. He didn’t think I would look in his pictures but I did. He had a video of his friends girlfriend with underwear and a shirt on and the boyfriend smacking her ass. He also had a snapshot of 3 escorts phone numbers. He got furious and grabbed the phone from me. He took my phone and found nothing. He refused to give me my phone back and when I tried to get it he shoved me into the couch. He punched a hole into my wall. He told me I’m not allowed to ask him any questions about that week. He even told me he was going to have sex with somebody and send me a video of it. I can’t even describe how completely broken I was. It was almost debilitating. He left. Apologized and then literally 2 hours later texted me asking if he can f*ck. I was so confused. This isn’t the person I fell in love with. I ended up writing him a closure letter and ending it. He never thought I would do that. I always accepted it for some reason. He promised his friend sent him the pictures of the escorts. He sent me his call logs and he’s the one that called atleast 5 different ones. One in particular he exchanged 10 different calls too. He initially called at 2 am and she called back at 8 am and numerous calls were made. The last of which he called 3 times 40 minutes after their last conversation. He promised he didn’t see her and said he cussed her out. He told me he would have seen her but she thought he was a cop. He said he ignored me all week because he was doing cocaine and hanging out with losers that he’ll never hang out with again. He said he couldn’t answer his phone because he told me so many lies he didn’t know what to say. He’s begging for me to take him back. Why I am I justifying his behavior. I feel like I’m holding on to what I thought this was. I tried to call the escort but she’s not answering. Not to be mean but I just want to know. If he never saw her why are there so many calls? Am I being stupid right now for trying to justify any of his behavior? I know I wasn’t perfect. I was hormonal and trying to get over the names he’s called me. He keeps apologizing and has been going to AA almost every day. I’m so conflicted because I know the person he’s capable of being. Are people able to change..
