My boyfriend becomes abusive when he drinks: What should I do?

Have other mamas dealt with a person who has an alcohol problem? My boyfriend has an issue with tolerating his alcohol and becomes verbally, mentally & physically abusive every time! He makes me seem like I have pushed him to a limit that he has to become defensive. But he does it every time he has drunk, and I can’t handle it. He says I overreact, and I’m ignorant because I don’t want alcohol in my home anymore because of this. Advice?

Leave. He’s gaslighting you. Just leave.

He is abusive when he drinks and he thinks you’re wrong for not wanting to be abused… This screams to me it is time for him to go.

Leave!!! My husband put me through this for SEVEN years and three kids together. He passed away now but he did get arrested and things got VERY bad before he passed away (drinking and pills killed him). I’m so sorry honey but seriously you NEED to leave before it gets even worse! I promise you it does not get better. Only worse.

Don’t allow it. End of story.

He is toxic. He won’t change. Send him on his way and be done. Why would you settle for abuse, ever? Do yourself a favor and cut him loose.

Leave now because it only get worse. I made that mistake and made the excuse for years ita only the alcohol it is the person… that’s bullshit. Leave before anything bad happens to you please

you tell him its you or the alcohol. the next time he drinks. you leave. my ex husband was the same way. which is why he is now my ex.

Please leave your not ignorant at all… he is an alcoholic and will bring you down with him… also you should NEVER stay with a man who abuses you on any level alcohol is not an excuse !!!

Until he gets help with his addiction and issues, this is going to continue. Please leave and find a safe place. And maybe set up some cameras so he can see how he acts when he is this way. Maybe seeing it will trigger him to stop and get help. :woman_shrugging:t3:
Good luck girl.
