I am an eighteen year old soon-to-be college freshman. My ex boyfriend has a problem with his drinking. I would say he is an alcoholic. We broke up and now he has no future plans and assigns blame to me and his parents. I read this is all very common. It is heartbreaking to hear about and to have watched such a young and talented man throw away so many opportunities so he can drink with his buddies. We had a plan. He was going to move with me to where I am attending college. After trying to intervene with his parents on his drinking, we eventually just broke up. We contact each other minimally. Hearing from him recently though, he has no plan of where to live and work. He graduated with a 4 year college degree. He is flailing and tossing the people who love him the most aside. It breaks my heart to watch the love of my life love something so toxic for him so much, I am looking for some answers and for some peace.
