i am in recovery for crack cocaine addiction. I have been clean for 5 months. i am invovlved with someone else in recovery, he's been clean for 18 months. lately he's been disappearing. a 10 minute trip takes 7 hours, stays gone overnight, he's doing this every weekend. he always has a story about why. he knows i'm suspicious, he says (of course) that he's not using. but i know this behavior, i've been there. i love him, he's a good man, i don't want to desert him like i was deserted. but, i can't do anything that will endanger my sobriety. i am powerless over his actions so mu question is what do i do to protect myself? do i stand by him until I can't anyhmore? or do i cut my losses?
