I’ve been dating my boyfriend for a couple years now. We moved in together about a year ago and that’s when signs of addiction became obvious — hidden alcohol around the house and cocaine use. He’s using it often enough where he alternates between staying up for a couple nights in a row to crashing and sleeping the next couple days.
He convinced me that he was doing less and less and eventually would quit. But it hasn’t happened, and I’ve been left feeling super drained by this situation.
I just signed a lease to move into a new apartment next month. I feel really guilty, but also don’t really know what else to do. I’m also torn, because I’m moving out, but we’re going to stay together. I told him that I wasn’t going to allow any drugs or alcohol at my new apartment. I also told him that he needs to focus on improving his life.
Has anyone else done this before? I’m really confused and wondering if it’s better to just break up and move on with life.
