How do the loved ones of recovering addicts handle relapse. I also want to know, is it worth it to stick it out when your significant other has a drug problem? My fiance is going to his first N.A meeting tonight. Has used in the last 24 hours also. Said it was one last time. He is scared that he had a heart attack while on it, but I think he just got scared. Its a good thing though. I pray to God daily that it scared him bad enough to want to quit. I know he wants to quit but it has such a hold on him. He will say anything to get money for it. This is going to be a long hard road, and I am not sure if I can handle a relapse. I love him so much, and would love to see him sober. I have tried for two years to get him sober, knowing all the while he had to make that decision himself. I just wish I knew if he was really ready to commit to sobriety. I want to support him, but I don't want any part of the drugs. Maybe if I tell him if he uses in the house then he has to leave. Would that work, or would it be too much pressure on him?

Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
