Good job on not responding.
It is so hard. At first. It gets easier, I promise.
I don't know if it would help any, but when it first happened to me, I had to physically part from any communication devices.
Then I used the hurt as a coping tool and then I moved on to a reward system for myself. Small things, not always things to buy.
Now, a few years later, it is a blissful day to not hear from there and an eye roll when I do.
Maybe there's a time he's never home or near his mobile phone and you can call then? Or set up something via paper that would be a set figure for him to send you every week so that the phone calls can end? And maybe if you could make it over what the top amount ever is, it could ensure you wouldn't have to ask again. just an idea. I have this too sometimes.Ashland 13
