I'm trying to get out of a relationship with my ex fiance who has substance abuse issues that he doesn't have a good handle on.

Part of me really wants to be there to support him and the other part of me wants to get far away from him to protect myself from his hurtful words and actions.

We've been together for almost 5 years.

I know I need to cut off communication but I can't bring myself to just stop talking to him.

Recently he's been looking into going to a 30 day inpatient program. I think it's great and really hope he follows through but I'm not willing to wait around anymore for him to do something about the drinking. I've waited too many other times thinking each time that things would be different and they never are.

I need for him and I to stop communicating but I'm not sure how to go about it. I don't want to just cut him off or ghost him. I want to find a way that won't cause him more hurt than it needs to.

What do I do???
