I’m reaching out because I really need someone to talk to concerning my current circumstance. My fiancé got out of rehab for alcohol in mid July he was sober for 4.5 months he relapsed in September. We started going to Celebrate Recovery meetings together in October everything was going great with the CR meetings until about 3 weeks ago. He blew up on me and said he didn’t like the meetings and he wanted to focus on recovery and getting himself together. I gave him his space after a few days he came over and apologized (but was drunk when he came over). He sobered up the next day and was saying he wants us to be together he just needs to take a step back from the relationship to focus on recovery. These past couple of weeks he hasn’t drank but he has checked in via the text and called twice, we used to talk everyday.
I understand the importance of recovery but I feel rejected. He texted me on Thursday and said thank you babe for your support. He texted me yesterday tell me about him being back in town from visiting his family for Christmas. For me the lack of communication is not working and I feel like I’m being pushed away even though he says he wants us to work. I’m angry and frustrated but I want him be sober but I feel like he can at least communicate more. Could someone please give their advice. Thank you.
