My Ex Is An Alcoholic: Don't Get Sucked In Like I Did. Be Happy and Healthy.
by Happy now
I started dating a beautiful, smart, well spoken woman a little over a year ago. Some red flags started to show .... odd behaviour on the phone, a few dates of not picking up her phone but I put it aside thinking the relationship was new.
I then noticed a few nights every two weeks or so she would drink herself stupid. She then wanted me to move in with her to save money, I put in a letter to my apt manager and moved my stuff to her house .... two days in a row less than a week into living there I came home from a 10 hour work day to find her passed out in the middle of the floor and with two days left on my lease I moved out.
A week passed and she said she is going to AA and wants me back. I get back with her and to make a long story short we went back and forth 6 times each time I believe her story of recovery and she even went to rehab for 30 days. She would talk to random people outside her house drunk and would hide phone numbers she would get.
I believe she cheated while drunk and even told me she almost gave head to someone for cash but backed out and he hit her. I rushed over to find her drunk with a bump on her head. All I have to say is if you can get out .... get out!!!!!!
One day they will be all for recovery and the next day will be the same fucked up story it was before - only now they know all the terms and rederick to hide it better and to blame you for being sicker then they are.
I'm sick because I stayed so long. I don't treat people like that and I refuse to get treated like that ... run if you can. Feelings heal, so stop thinking "what if this time they actually want to get better" - just go and be healthy, nobody can be healthy in something like that.
