Dating an alcoholic, I need help!

I have been dating an alcoholic for almost 3 years & I feel like the addict. Iím addicted to him & donít know why I canít let go. He is verbally, sexually, & physically abusive. I have lost friends because of him. My sons do not like him. He is mean & vindictive! I canít let go! I use to be friendly & outgoing & love doing things. Now I am just depressed & donít want to do anything. It is a long story but I just need someone to talk to. I know he is wrong for me.
I have become a Ďshell of the old meí, but I love him. He says he loves me but I know he is really just using me.

You might also check out AlAnon in your city as a support for yourself.
