He's breaking the agreement.  So you have the choice to amend the agreement to put it in words that you both agree to, or you can play hardball and threaten asking for full custody unless he complies.    I hear ya on the breaching agreement end - my ex breaches the divorce agreement all the time by not paying his share (he's supposed to pay 50% of the clothes/shoes for the girls).  He pays nothing, even when I claim with receipts.  He knows very well I can't afford...
I'm still waiting for my access to the private forum (hint hint moderators!!!!!)
Take one day at a time.   You WILL make mistakes and sometimes fall back into your old patterns.  What'll be different this time is your re-bound time.  What you can do, is write in a journal and analize the situation.  Something like: here is what happened.  How I felt during and after.  What I will do next time I feel the triggers coming.  Writing it down kind of commits you to doing it, or at least thinking about it.   The 12 step plan from CoDa is...

You don't just wake up one day and just 'love yourself'.  It comes gradually.  I am still working on it, after a similar experience to the OP and a divorce.  Take one day at a time.  There will be ups and downs.  It's all a part of the process.  Just take the time to figure out to progress yourself through some hobbies/interests.  Not only is that a great place to meet people (and perhaps a potential partner), but it's just a great place for you to do something you...
