My drinking killed my relationship

So two months ago my relationship ended because of my drinking. He’d gotten to the point he was tired of my attitude and drinking and couldn’t deal with it anymore. He told me he still loves me as a friend. I’m just wondering if there’s any hope of ever getting my relationship back. I know time is the only thing that can change things. He’s afraid I’ll return to my old pattern of drinking and he told my friend he’s done with the relationship. Can I ever get his trust back?
I’m so frustrated that I let things get to the point they were. I’m 75 days sober and I know I have to do this for me and I am. But I can’t give up the hope that we’ll find each other again. I feel very lost.


Hi there
Welcome to the forum @Mander0712
It can take a long time to rebuild trust once you get sober. Let time pass, stay sober, prove by your actions youve changed and hopefully you’ll be drawn back to each other.

Let your sobriety prove how much you have changed…

Welcome to the community Amanda and great work on 75 days of sobriety!

Keep at it as actions speak loudest - your sobriety will show your seriousness to your new path in life.

Unfortunately we can never know if our loved once will fully forgive us and how long it would take for them to even consider it. All we can do is keep faith that amends can be made. Just need to keep working on ourselves.

Grateful to have you here with us. I do hope you keep on the sobriety path! Great group of people on this app and loads of support here.
