I wanted to introduce myself, My name is darci and for the last year I have been on a rollercoaster ride of which I have never been before. Suffice it to say When I met my guy I knew he used narcotics but being naive I thought it was "recreational". Within a matter of months I came to realize there was a problem, but by this time had already developed feelings for this man and the codependant in me ( yes I admit it) wanted to "fix him". After a very rough 4 months he quit using and though still drank seemed to be doing good, our life moving forward I thought! well, in the last few weeks ( after him being clean 5 months) I am noticing signs of him using again! I want to show my support for him, leaving is not the answer here because without the drugs he is a loving, wonderful giving man and I am truly in love with him. He knows what he has to do for his addiction but I am left without support for me, the one hurting behind his addiction!!! Alanon seemed geared to alcholism related issues so here I am! I would love to hear anyones positive thoughts on this situation, what has worked for you and is there light at the end of the tunel??? Thank you all for being here!
