We met 23 yr ago dated for a while, then met up again 3 yrs ago, I'm 50 he is 48, he has a drinking problem. I moved out to co a 1 1/2 yrs ago to get my life in order hadn't worked for a while. I moved in w/mom got a job. mom and bro lived out here 20 yr. He has a 12yr old son that loves me but doesn't like being around him when he is drinking of course son doesn't know he's drinking and finally quit wanting to visit with him because of it. I have a 28yr son with 2 grand babies and a daughter 22 with 1 grand baby. Bf moved out here with me we got own place, he finally got a job after about a yr of being out here, bought me a ring and we were going to get married. but then started drinking again. My daughter is having problems and wanted to move out here, since I mentioned it to my mom and didn't discuss it with him cause he had been drinking a lot, he rented a U-haul and packed most of his stuff and left me in 2 days back to calif. Before we moved out here he could go to aa meetings all the time out here they don't have any we are in a very small town. His reasoning he wants to change, go to meetings get his son back, which I understand and I miss my kids and grand babies so I'm moving back in a month. Things is I don't know if we should try and make it work he wants to and so do I, if he truly quits drinking. He is going to meetings out there. When he left it devastated me. Thank god our lease is up on our house 5/1/14 already gave notice and am almost done packing house. I'm really confused and don't know if I should try to make it work or not.
