Trouble in paradise

I've been with my alcoholic boyfriend for a year.first off let me say when he's not drunk we're perfect when he is drunk I don't know him. He's got to meetings and will go a week without drinking then a week on. He's recently lost weight and looks so unhealthy. I don't know what to do. I'm close to leaving bc I can't imagine watching him kill himself slowly. However if I leave I'll be heartbroken and he'll be dead. Do u have any advice for me? I'm so desperate to be there for him.

Hi wifetobe - I'm sorry for your situation but I'm glad you're here.
You'll find a lot of support

I think staying in a relationship because you feel he might die if you leave is probably not a great reason to stray.

The fact is we alcoholics are pretty hardy.

Think about you and what you want your life to be like.
Can you deal with the current situation if nothing ever changes?

I don't know exactly how you arrived at this false conclusion, but even if it were true, that's not a good enough reason to stay in a relationship that has the potential to make your life miserable.
