Hi Autumn and welcome. You might also want to check out the Friends and Family of Alcoholics forum here: https://www.soberrecovery.com/forums...ly-alcoholics/
No doubt there are a lot of threads there you will relate to.
If you want to know how it feels, perhaps you can just ask him? It almost sounds like you are walking on eggshells a bit? He's still your boyfriend and you can still talk to him like you normally do, true?
