Recognize that it is pointless to "love" an abusive addict - it harms you and does him no good at all, only encouraging him to remain as horrible as he genuinely is. Contact POWA or some similar group helping abused women. Of course you should leave him and protect yourself, including the use of a protection orderm if necessary. YOu are helping him to remain abusive and addicted.Save your love for someone who deserves it
