I've been in a relationship with my 2.5 year old father for 5 years. It's never been a good relationship. For the first 3 years he was physically abusive. I left him and took our daughter. He promise to stop hurting me so I came back. Now we live with his mom and step dad. Both him and his mom belittle me about not having a job. I take care of the house and our daughter. I can't get a job because I don't trust him or his mom to watch her. They both are alcoholics. I've told him if he didn't stop emotionally abusing me I would take our daughter and leave. He threatens me with calling the cops and saying I'm a drug addict. I'm not he has forced me to smoke weed. Any help is much appreciated

take your daughter and leave. do NOT tell him.

Get an attorney to request custody and support.

Leave. Go to a shelter and seek therapy as well. Breaking the cycle of abuse is NOT easy... you've allowed it to continue for so long that it probably feels somewhat normal, but it is NOT normal and you do not want your daughter growing up thinking that this sort of behavior is OK on any level.

I agree with Shawnn, find a women's shelter that you can go to.
I regards to the smoking weed, stop it now. No one has forced you to smoke it, that was your choice.
