Do I still have some hope?
(Forest Hill, New York)
My question is should I continue to trust my boyfriend or have some hope or believe that he really sober forever because for almost 3 yrs until now I've been helping him from head to toe and still no job, he's a liar, he's cheating, no money, smoking and lazy.
So many health issues and I'm scared to bring him to our own country in the Philippines because most of my family they all drink. Then they get drunk then fall asleep and the next day everybody goes back to work. That's why I'm not worried about them.
But my boy friend if he's drunk he is nasty and he hits me and I feel like he doesn't care about me and is trying to kill me. That's why he is in jail now and I'm still paying his fine.
I'm not sure if we have AA meetings in our area. I don't know what to do or is there any help? If there are no meetings is he OK to only read the big book?
