Dating a ex heroin addict
Some of my friends got hooked themselves doing this. I told him he should go get some help, he told me AGAIN that he can do it by himself.
I do agree with Fish I wouldn't be running off to Vegas anytime soon.. It never worked out well for me when I was doing that stuff......a matter of fact, it didn't turn out well for anyone I knew who was trying to keep people off drugs. Its hard 2 leave him after almost 2 yrs of helping him!
At times, I get a little turned off or annoyed by hearing the stories or by always having to watch drug movies and it gets upset about it.
It creates this rift between us and I don't know how to handle the situation. He is telling you about his past because it is all he knows. Try and do things together, share experiences, make new memories to replace the old.
What's the best way to keep a healthy relationship when one person is a former addict and the other one is not.
Keep your distance, but don't forget about him. 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.I still use about twice a month, and that's accurate and honest.I know I'd be done with it completely if she was still mine.
