I have been involved in a relationship for the past 7 yrs with a man to whom I kept at a distance for 5 of those years. Once he moved in with me I noticed he had a bad addiction to alcohol he worked, he helped with the bill’s and we were still close. We dance on the sidewalks, we sing together we play together the problem his drinking which spun out of control. I tend to believe that one can change. I was in the process of remodeling my home, his drinking was at a all time high he hit me swore he would never to do this again I believed him. Two months later when cooking in the kitchen the dark side took over he grabbed me by the hair threw me to the ground and choked me I could not breath I saw white and the feeling I was passing out and losing control. During this I bit his finger as hard as I could and pinched him until I drew blood. Once he let go I got up and had three blows to the back of my head.
Wow, this came from someone I loved. He was drunk off his ass and he did this to me. I called the police and had him arrested. He spent 3 months in jail. He is now in treatment and has not drank a drop since then. He is in therapy and doing great. We can speak on the phone, we can text but the courts have a partial no contact order.
My older kids have stated they will not speak with me if I give this man another chance. I love him, and he is doing great with rehab. He is one great person being sober I have known him since high school for over 30 plus years
Do you have any suggestions in this regard as I feel torn and confused.
