maybe he's in the brig after running her over (accidentally of course) with the 911?

It's got bad news written all over it.

For the soldiers out there, if he caves to her after informing his superiors that she is an addict, what becomes of him?

Sorry to disappoint you all, but I didn't take her back, and I didn't bang her. We met, signed the car title over to her and got it registered in her name, I helped her put all of her stuff in her car and we said our goodbyes. I gave her a list of every drug rehab place on the island. I highly doubt she'll do anything with it.

So it's all over now, for good. I have cut all ties.

congrats on the first step. Now the hard part begins.

If she calls (and she will call...maybe not today or tomorrow but she will), don't answer. If she leaves a message, don't listen to it, just delete it.

*Don't* jump in bed with some other girl. Some will advise that but frankly it seems like you've got some issues to sort through (given your post about already having one failed marriage and now this), so you are primed to "fall" for the wrong girl again quickly. btdt. Go surfing. Go driving. Don't go banging.

What about the cell phone? The crown jewel of a failed relationship is the last tap of that a$$. If you can't stand the sight of her, throw a flag over her and do her for your country! *****, do it for me!

I was hoping it would be you in the over, but I think I'm going to have to go with you and the under when it's all said and done.

'Atta boy. Get some rest and then do something you've been wanting to do for a long time but haven't had the chance. Then go work out. Then drive the 911 some more. Anything to free the mind and get back to life proper. Good luck!

GOOD FOR YOU! Now stick to you guns and put her behind you. We were really all pretty concerned here disspite our humor over it. We ARE a pretty humorous bunch.

Oh and we are really proud of you.

I'm going to take a nap before I go to work tonight. I'll get a good workout in tonight, and start eating, drinking, and sleeping again. I'll feel better after going out with some friends.

Congrats dude! Go and throw your cell phone into the ocean, rip you phone from the wall.

After that... go eat and drink something (Not booze...not yet) and get some sleep. Keep your friends around you for a while and KEEP BUSY. When you are alone and when your mind is not occupied is when you will be most vulnerable and your thoughts will drift.

Did the cops get anything from her dope bag?

Honestly, I'd rather hear that you are now putting from the rough than knocking her bottom out one more time.

Kudos to you for being a gentleman, and not doing that which you would have regretted.

Thanks. That's how I wanted to handle it. Even though she hurt me, my conscious is 100% clear. I gave her a perfect life, and she threw it away. So now I left her with all of her clothes and stuff, a car, and her money, and the phone numbers to all the rehab places. There is nothing more I could have done.

She just called me, saying she should just jump off a balcony or something. You know, I almost feel bad for even thinking this, but I think I would rather see her take her life now than slowly degrade into a toothless druggie.

Why did you take her call? You are ignoring unanimously good advice here.

Time to get a new cellphone number. That's her effed up way of keeping you close.

Don't worry, I'm getting a new number. I'm giving her a day or two before I turn her cell phone off, in case she actually is trying to fix herself. When I turn it off, I will also get a new number.

And to be honest, I took the phone call because I was crying and not thinking straight. I will make sure I do not take anymore of her calls from here out.
