Dating a ex heroin addict
I don't want it to ruin my life as well as his. I'm scared if I break up with him he will go off the deep end. encourage him to get more help than just white knuckleling it..... I really hurt the person who was trying to help me the first time by getting him to fill all my needs.
He doesn't want to have anything to do with anything about drugs, even people.
After dating one dud after another, you finally find someone who seems to have it all—thoughtful, witty, responsible, and good-looking to boot.He tried a few times before to get off of these drugs but relapsed. I'm scared that he will relapse again sometime in the future. getting involved will help him get better in the long run... I'm going to break up with him but tell him I'll still be here if he needs me or if he's getting weak....? Was he able to go into clean life with or without counseling? I tried it for a yr and stayed clean for a yr , then i got loaded again ,this time tried single, wow what a difference I learned about myself, what I like , what I dont like , who I was as a person sober.I'm just wondering if it is worth it so stick around? How many people really do relapse and how many make it without doing drugs? chances are super high that you will be doing this for the rest of your life... wait 2 years before you get married or anything like that. He's doing it on his own because he said that the rehab's don't help him. I had to fix myself with the support of other recovering addicts.I'm a 32 year old woman and I've been with my boyfriend for a little over a year and a half. When I met him, he was very honest and told me from the very beginning that he used to be a drug addict, did heroin for 4 yrs and was now several years clean.
Despite the fact that I have no experience, either personal or via friend/family, with drugs, it was fine with me.
I still use about twice a month, and that's accurate and honest.
