What should you do if your boyfriend left after 6 years and told you he was not happy and does not love you anymore but he still phones regularly asking you how you are and he has started drinking?

It sounds very much like you have a very depressed ex boyfriend and you may have seen signs of depression while still going together. Some symptoms are: Moodiness, starting to drink or drinking more, doing drugs, not eating well or over-eating, doesn't want to go out anywhere, doesn't want to see friends or even his buddies. If going to school his grades slip. He may not care how he dresses and his hygiene has changed for the worst. He may sit in front of the TV all the time or sit at the computer and do little else. Sexual relations with him are less than desirable .. he may perform, but shows no tenderness or excitement during the time of love-making. He's indifferent towards you and those around you. He's lost interest in his own family if he was ever close to them. There are many other symptoms, but these are the main ones. These are signs of depression and believe it or not there are people out in society walking around depressed and they don't even know it. Depression is at the highest level ever and especially since 9/11 in the U.S. The amount of patients seeking psychological help tripled after 9/11. Your boyfriend probably still loves you, (you always hurt the one you love) but doesn't know what to do about the way he feels. He's reaching out, yet doesn't know what to say. If you still love him you could meet with him and ask him some of the questions relating to depression and see if he fits the symptoms. Don't tell him he needs to see a psychiatrist or "shrink" because he'll become upset and revert even deeper into himself. Just start talking to him and express how you feel at times (everyone can get depressed off and on) and go from there. When you feel you have gained his trust then it's time to tell him he needs some counseling. Tell him when he comes to COME SOBER! DON'T have any alcohol around when he comes. Make coffee, give him a pop, turn off the TV, put on some soothing music and start talking. If you don't feel you want to get into this with him then tell him on the phone he needs help and walk away and don't feel guilty. Good luck hon

It may be because you don't like him anymore. Or it maybe tht when you guys first started going out you pushed it to fast and so there is nothing more to look forward to.

His addiction is more important to him than you are. Sorry to have to tell you this, but it is the truth.
