My boyfriend was a recovering addict when I met him and he has been clean for years, until recently. He disappeared three seperate nights before Christmas. He told me what he had done and it wasn't going to happen again. I've never dealt with this sort of thing, so I believed him. This weekend it happened again. When I did speak to him he told me that he didn't want to be like that again and that he was going to start going through the twelve steps again. Yesterday he told me that he had forgotten where he came from and that he got comfortable with not using and stopped working the steps. I thought and prayed about this and decided that I can't (in good conscience) leave him now, when he actually asked me to help him, he says he can't do it alone. From what I've read, this is a life long thing for him, but I guess my question is... Are there people out there who recover and live close to normal lives and don't go back to using?
