You sound a lot like me. I've been an addict for ten years. I have a fiancé that only criticizes my addiction and never supports me or tries to understand addiction. I can't leave him at the moment because I have no job, and have nowhere to go. Plus I have an 18 year old daughter who is still in high school and lives with me. I'm clueless as to how I am going to get out of the mess I'm in. I've never told anyone else about it, never did the online chat thing until yesterday, and I think I will start with an N/A meeting. You're not alone. You've helped me to see that I am not alone either. Addiction is a very selfish disease and has turned me into a person I hate.
