is it possible for a cocaine/alcohol addict to return to being the person they used to be before the addiction? my ex was addicted for just over a year. we have had no contact since xmas. i have no doubt he.l contact me at some point but i dont want to make the mistake of thinking we can go back to how things were before the addiction. i got him a therapist. this is the only help he has other than his sister & his ex girlfriend who have no idea when he takes it. i can tell as soon as he takes it. i think thats one reason he wont contact me. last time i spoke to him his therapist had cancelled his last 2 appointments so i dont think he will bother to see him now. i think if his therapist rings him he,l just tell him he,s doing fine, even if he,s still using. what chance has he got if he,s trying to do it on his own even though he has support just from family who dont know the first thing about adiction? if he does contact me he,l tell me he,s clean even if he isnt. i just want to know if anyone knows what are his chances of relapsing if he has no outside help & doing it just through willpower which he doesnt seem to have alot of. i still love him & deep down have this hope that he,l wake up out of this nightmare & think "what have i done" then he comes home & we live happily ever after. i know it doesnt work like that with addiction but it just doesnt stop me hoping.
