I’m new to this and not sure how to handle my alcoholic boyfriend when he drinks above and beyond to much. Afterwards, I go into another room and avoid him, but how do I react after he awakes from his pass-out drunken situation? Do I ignore the fact he lies and passes out or do I say something? Also, afterward the alcoholic ignores me for 3 to 4 days. He says he does this because he knows he was wrong. I repeatedly tell him how hurtful that is to ignore me after he is the one passing out from to much drinking. Do I ignore everything or talk to him. His drinking and passing out has become a routine. He knows it upsets me when he ignores me and he sometimes makes me feel like it’s my fault. I think he purposely does this so I will come crawling to him and then it makes him feel like what he did is okay. Mainly, am I suppose to act towards him when he passes out and ignores me? At this point, I do care! I just don/t know how to handle this situation. Any insight would be appreciated.
