That doesn't have anything to do with killing the battery!
Since the OP's knowledge of 12v is limited, I would say hunt ya down a good mechanic in your area. Try lookin on Craigslist. You don't need to take it to a dealer.
But I digress........
Sounds like a charging problem to me, either the alternator or regulator went out to lunch, or there's a problem in the charging circuit wiring.
