Run.

If he choked you he will kill you given the chance.

Choking is the biggest sign domestic abuse will turn deadly.

Do not refuse to press charges, you were very lucky to get out alive.

This. Jesus fucking Christ I will never understand the "oh he's such a great guy this was just a misunderstanding" thought process.

NO. HE WILL KILL YOU.

While I have never been in OP’s situation, I have been in an emotionally abusive relationship and it was really eye opening to me. I mean, i know why I stayed as long as I did. He loved me (I believe, still) and I loved him. It was very hard to accept that the unloving things he did were not outweighed by the love I felt.
