All of you have helped me so much, I really appreciate it, the rest of the al-anon meetings this week I can not go to because I am working. But I am working on myself. I am going to take a defensive course, I cant afford to lose my drivers BECAUSE I am going to get my realistate license. I will be working and going to school so I will not have a lot of time to see him. So it gives him, him time and me my time. which we don't get to see much of each other anyway because he works mon-sat 8-5 and I work any day 4-12 with one 8-4 shift in a 6 week cycle. so we don't get to see a lot of each other.

No, the "no major changes" is advice for the ALCOHOLIC (who might make hasty or ill-considered decisions not ultimately in his best interest). The alcoholic has no more right to control what the partner does than the other way around.

So I got talking to my boyfriend today and I brought up what if you relapse. He tells me he wont. I told him don't you dare promise me that. He replied with love you should know me by now I never make promises because you never know whats going to happen. I know have noticed since hes not drinking he is a little more emotional then he use to be. He goes more in depth about how much he loves me and how much he loves his kids. Which we are going to see this weekend. Im excited his kids are so sweet and I haven't seen them since September. He hasn't seen them since November. Im excited
