  1. I went through this EXACT scenerio except my ex's issue was weed and boy did it cause some drama! I wrote about it briefly when I first started blogging you can read it here:

    But after reading yours, I feel because my situation was so serious, I should really go into more detail as you did, to make people see how alcohol and weed can really affect people and relationships. Thank you so much for sharing this with the world, it'll make you feel better for getting it out, but it will also maybe make people in similar situations realise how bad their relationship is and hopefully leave before it gets too dangerous.

    Very proud and well done! 🙂 <3

    • Thank you for your kind words 🙂
      I love the dark humour in your post!
      So glad we both got out of those relationships, and congratulation on finding a man who deserves you 🙂
      If posts like these make even one person realise they are not alone, then they are worthwhile.

  2. Hi Debbie,

    Thanks for putting the link to this post on my blog. It is strange isn't it. Sometimes when we are in relationships we push the bad stuff aside, try to block it out, try to forget it and live in our own fantasy world where everything is okay. Then it gets too much. There is a day, an event, an argument, an incident, something that just makes you realise that it is wrong, the relationship is wrong and you can't be in it anymore. I am glad you had that day, however painful and difficult it was. You are in a much better place now. xx

    • When I read your post it struck that for all our situations were quite different they were also eerily similar. You sum it up really well in your comment, I did try to pretend everything was ok, even to myself, because it was easier than admitting it wasn't.
      When that day came it was truly awful, but I'm glad in a way it happened because it pushed me to walk away. You're right I am in a much better place now and I am so much happier! I hope you are too 🙂
