Don't know how much more i can take. by Claire 77I have been with my boyfriend 5years and in the beginning things were great he liked a drink and i thought it was just socially and because it was a new relationship so didn't think to much into it. Fast forward 3 years the drinking has become so bad that he has psoriasis of the liver I don't know what to do i have tried everything begging pleading crying ultimatums negotiations everything but it's always the same result. I feel like I am always fighting a losing battle I have to put up with the constant put downs and the jibes and the sarcastic comments every time he has had a drink and it's getting to the point now where its effecting my mental health. He has seen councillors that have told him that he will be dead if he carries on drinking but still this has no affect my Councillor said to me the other day that I need to stop doing all the things I do to help him and back off let him fall flat on his face because everything I have tried has done nothing it's like hitting your head repeatedly against a brick wall and expecting it not to hurt. I know he loves me and tells me so all the time when he's not drunk but I honestly don't know if I love him anymore I have had years of this behaviour off him and now I am just physically and emotionally drained.
