Violation of couple relationship

I am getting ready to go and remove all my belongings once again from Doc's apartment and terminate our couple relationship which I feel he has violated beyond repair with his alcoholic decisions. I considered moving out of the building for a while, but since I am unable to do that in a hurry, the important thing I need to do is distance myself from him. If I can do that, then I might not feel it is necessary to go to that lengths. It is very hard to break up a relationship while living in the same place, but it is even harder to move at my age.
I woke up and decided I did not really want to move and probably won't be so bothered by my new neighbors and their behaviors, if I do something about Doc. I don't have a relationship with them so we are about as distant as it is possible to be while living on the same floor in the same building and I intend to keep it that way.
It is hard to explain what Doc did as he did not see much wrong with it, but I am going by how he made me feel. So I need to get busy. I will add to this entry after I have returned home.

I returned home with my belongings mostly breakfast things and said nary a word to Doc as I said all that yesterday. I bought some coffee from the Circle K, but I intend to start drinking tea. I like to make a cup of that in the mornings. I am feeling somewhat better now that is done.

It sounds like you are making a very strong move .. actually thinking of moving out makes an even stronger statment. I hope you can accomplish the breakup without too much stress.

I'm sorry you must once again distance yourself from Doc.

I agree it is very hard to end a relationship while in close proximity to each other. Salt Gulch and Boulder were to close for LeFair and I but when I saw how he acted in Phoenix I knew he was not committed to a reconsideration.So off he went bck to Boulder while I stayed here and he moved on much easier. I do hope you don't have to change residents to make a break as I think that would be very hard on you at this stage of life.

Oh Gerry I'm sorry you are going through this again. I know it must be painful for you to make this decision. I wish you well and hope you don't find yourself too stressed.

Sorry you are having this upheavel again. Reminds me of my friend. The man part of the couple was the one always leaving and taking his micro wave with him. We started calling him "have micro wave will travel".
