An expectant mom writes in asking for advice after her boyfriend who promised to quit drinking but has continuously lied about his progress. Being six months pregnant, the soon-to-be mom is worried about her family’s future and didn’t realize the father of her child was an alcoholic until recently. She knows where their relationship is heading, but she’s still looking for advice from others.
A member of the community asks:
“I am 6 months pregnant. My boyfriend promised he would quit drinking. I didn’t realize he had this bad of a drinking problem until now. He did well for about 6 weeks and then he had two slip-ups. At first, he lied to me about drinking, but I found out through a mutual friend that he was wasted. He promised he would go to AA because he didn’t want to lose me. Well, he lied about that too. He got wasted again and tried to lie again about drinking and won’t go to AA. I pretty much know where this is headed, but I would like any advice. Thank you!”
