Hey everyone. Well, here goes. My girlfriend is a crack addict. We live together and she has a job and her own money, so I do not support it. I am emotionally at the end of my rope. She keeps telling me she has hit bottom and will never do it again, and I know she wants that, but I also know she is lying now. It's been too many times. She lies to me like it is second nature, a God given ability. I don't understand that. I could never lie to the face of someone I love, knowing that they would be so hurt. She is also bipolar and I don't think her psychiatrist is prescribing the right medication for that. The mood swings and constant lying and manipulating is driving me to an early grave. I really want to help her, but I don't know what to do. We live together. I can't afford an apartment on my own and we have a lease. I am also afraid that she will spiral downward if I completely give up on her. I don't want her to die. She used to shoot up heroin and cocaine, so I really think she does not think this is a big deal. She thinks it's just a fun thing to do, until she overdoes it. Only then she realizes she has a problem, but forgets the next day. Mood swing. Please advise if you can.
