Maybe an outside perspective can help me. My relationship with my bf started out fairly normal. I knew he drank "a lot" but didn't realize how much until we moved in together.. I figured he was a big boy and could make his own choices. Two dui's later he was left with no choice but to start treatment. I am glad he did because him and i would not be together today if he hadn't. Almost two years later he is back in treatment again for a completely different addiction, this time I drew the line. He went from being involved with housework and cooking meals, and helping with the kids to, focusing only on himself, his addictions, his recovery, his job, his car, his car stereo, everything but our relationship. I am tired of feeling like I am the only one who compromises in our relationship. I dont know if I think I'm co-dependant, but I do know I feel as if I'm waking up from a dream trying to figure out what in the world happened to our relationship, and wondering if he even cares enough to help me fix it.

It does sound like you are codependent. Read the book mentioned in the site Codependency No More by Melody Beattie. It was eye opener for me. Maybe it will help you. You cannot fix it. You can only fix yourself. You need to take care of your needs. Just read the book and you will find out.
