Dating an addict - Free xrated dating for men
Since then he has been unable to do so, only keeping clean a few weeks at a time.He has been back and forth between heroin and suboxone and methadone.
Five days ago was supposedly the last time he used, but I honestly can't be sure of that. He's been to two detox places in teh last five days and is currently holed up with his alcoholic father.I'm at a serious loss at where I go from here, I know the real him and I know without question that that's the person I'm meant to be with but I don't know what to do in the meantime. My daughter and I have a saying that goes like this. He has to do more than stop using he has to change from within.I'm drained physically, mentally, emotionally, financially... I'm so stressed and I want to help him and I want to help myself but I don't have the slightest clue where to start. Thank you for letting me rant a bit and vent, I don't have many people (no one really) that I can go to about any of this. The nicest person in the world is an addict in recovery,and the worst is one that is active. I am not saying you have to give up on him,just the oppisite.You do have to back of and not allow him to take advanage of you.So this is my first attempt at getting any kind of help for myself about my boyfriend and his addiction. On our first date he told me right upfront that he was a recovered heroin addict and had been clean for almost five years.I accepted this about his and chose did what was needed to maintain his sobriety.
Addiction runs through his family and he had started with drugs pretty young and continued for quite some time.
He had been in and out of rehabs/detox and finally got clean shortly after his son was born.
A few months into us dating he called me one night to tell me he had slipped up and been getting high again.
He was adament that it was a huge mistake and he wholly regretted what he'd done, that he'd already made some phone calls and found a detox center where he could go get clean.
I understood making a mistake like that and I took him to detox.
When he came out I thought things would be okay, he was determined to stay clean and get himself together.
