My boyfriend and I have been together for over a year and a half. He has been abusing Oxycontin for as long as we have been together, I am strongly against drug abuse. From what I have heard, he has been doing for it for probably more than 4 years. Before we began dating, he was using every drug under the sun but has since cleaned up because of me. I rarely can talk to him about it because he gets very defensive and it just turns into an argument. I have expressed issues with his abuse and asked him to quit numerous times. Finally, I put my foot down and told him he either stopped or I was gone. Miraculously, he agreed to finally stop. From what he has told me, he is not doing OCs anymore. I was under the impression he was switching to subs, but he says they are hard to get. So after noticing some white powder, I asked what it was... and he said it was morphine. So I guess my first question would be... how should I feel about him stopping OCs but using morphine?? It seems he might just be substituting or maybe he could have weened himself down from OCs, and is going to ween himself off morphine?? I can tell he's not on it constantly, his dilated pupils give me hope that one day it will all be over with. I'm looking for advice from drug addicts, recovering addicts, or possibly people in my situation... not looking for people who are just going to tell me I shouldn't be with a drug addict. Thank you so much in advance!

I did make a comment to my boyfriend when we first got there when I noticed the party started in the bar. He said to me "why don't you just have 1 drink and not get drunk?" ... I just...
