RUN, don't walk away from there. His addiction will eventually suck the lifeblood out of any "relationship", his needs will overshadow everyone else's because like Courtney said, he is broken and cannot commit to a really deep and lasting relationship.
Getting clean takes courage and willpower and the very strong conviction to stop.Most people will stumble many times before they conquer addiction. Your daughter's childhood will go by so fast, she will be gone before you know it. Focus on her and you, you owe it to both of you. You can be supportive of him, but don't let his problem overshadow your life with your daughter, she must come first.
If he doesn't believe in therapy, then he is not yet ready to do the work of getting clean. We must first look within to tackle the reason we abuse and the strength to fight that battle. Take his advice, be strong and move on. You and your daughter deserve so much better. I wish you the best.
