Attached but lonely
So I have a fool as a boyfriend whom recently decided to sell drugs because he's too lazy to get another job. He leaves me very often for days to go sell his drugs and ends up drinking and snorting cocaine. He comes home reeking in alcohol 2-3 days later and then apologizes for not coming home. He doesn't answer my calls nor responds to my texts. I've forgiven him more than enough times for many reasons, I love him, want to help him with his alcohol problem, and I partially depend on him financially. I want him to leave every time he does this but I won't be able to afford my rent or car payment. What are my best options?
So your boyfriend sells drug, takes drugs and abuses alcohol. And... You think you can "fix" him. You're spinning your wheels and wasting your life on him. Maybe you don't think so now, but in another 5-10 years you're going to kick yourself if you're still with him and he isn't either dead or in prison.
You're the Fool. You need to stop being used and get yourself a job and stand on your own. He seems to be his own best customer, HIS behavior can land both of you in jail. Get yourself a job, do whatever you need to do to MOVE ON FROM THIS GUY...
Thank you. I am trying my best to find a second job but it's hard with my kids schedule even though I'm already working more than 40 hrs/wk. I guess I'll just have to find a smaller place or a roommate. Thanks again u both are right he needs to be left.
