My boyfriend has struggled with alcohol for on and off 5 years (we've been together for 3 and a half years) but over the past 2 years it has got a lot worse. 6 months ago he admitted to myself and his mum and dad that he's an alcoholic and has been getting help going to meetings. I just feel like he's never going to change am I a bad person for wanting to walk away now? All of my family and friends have gold me to leave but they don't understand what he's going through they don't understand it's an illness they just see that he cheats, lies, drinks all the time and doesn't work. He is spoilt by his parents, and only child and they baby him, they are split up and he plays them off against each other, I don't want to leave him to cope with this on his own but I can't cope with it anymore. It's only been really bad for about a year but it feels like a lifetime. I hate going to work now as I'm constantly waiting for this phonecall or text to say he's drunk again. It is so hard not having one ounce of trust for the person I love. I don't believe anything he says alcohol has turned me into a paranoid bitch who crys all the time and questions everything.
