I had to finally leave my alcoholic boyfriend. When we first met he drank heavily, but quit cold turkey because he didn't want to ruin what he had. We were together 1 1/2 years. He and I were going to get married next month. Things were great. We had our usual fights, but nothing bad. He loved me and I loved him. I have two kids from a previous relationship and he has two from other girls. I have my kids all the time. I wasn't working, but that was fine with him. I took care of the kids and house. Well a few weeks ago, he started drinking again and wanting to party. He was trying to blame me that the relationship was ending because I don't trust him. Actions speak louder than words I told him. I knew he had relapsed back into alcohol. He acted so different towards me. Just like he didn't give a damn at all about his family! He told me I could stay at the house and I did for awhile. Then I saw that he was cheating on me and I couldn't take it anymore. He was stayin out all night and not coming home until the next morning. I seriously have no idea what the hell happened. I knew he was/is under a lot of stress from work, but I didn't think it would end like this. I moved most my things out, but still have plenty there. I have no home, no job, and two kids that I am raising all by myself. I am staying with my sister for the time being. My ex told me he is sorry for causing me so much pain, but drinking is how he handles things. I cannot believe this. This man totally changed on me overnight!!!!! His daughter was like my own and I am going to miss her terribly!! I just wish I could understand why this has happened to me and my kids. They loved him like he was their dad. Now another relationship ends and I am so confused and hurt. My kids as well. Any advice or support please...
