I know him well enough to know that if I disappear and won't talk to him at all he'll continue to blame me and not get the help he needs.
with all due respect, i don't think it is possible for you to know this, starcat.

i have seen, on many occassions, the spouse leaving and going no contact being the impetus for the A's true attempt at recovery.

anyway, like i said, i think you will soon realize yourself that as long as he's drinking, contact with him will just keep you hooked and you will be dodging one manipulation after the other. time will show you this. we are just trying to spare you the continued heartache that such contact inevitably brings, that's all.
