Anyone like me??

Unread postby annemarie611 » Sat May 01, 2010 10:26 pm

I am a recovering alcoholic/addict. I met my boyfriend almost a year ago (here it goes) in rehab! I romance. He has been using on and off since. Right now he is in prison. I don't know what to do. I do love this man. He is such a wonderful person (as we all are) when he is not using. I went to a few meetings when I was first clean and convinced myself they just weren't for me. Now I know that was just an excuse. If I were to go to meetings and truly be there, I would have to be completely honest. I didn't want to hear that I should leave him. Truthfully, I still don't. I want to believe this time is the last time. I have been clean for almost a year but I want to be sober. I'm am so confused and so torn. Please if anyone has any advice please let me know.

You know the answer: Leave him. Stay sober. Take care of yourself.

hi i have learned from family members that were in the same relationship situation as you that it will never work if you wanna be clean and stay clean you cant be with him you are so worth more that . he probly is a great guy but neither of you can get and stay clean around eachother for him as well because now you have alcohol and drugs in commom with eachother give it time years maybe with both of you being clean and if you guys are ment to be you will be with eachother again . hope it helps i no you dont wanna hear that thow belive me i understand my husband is an alcoholic i know the feeling

You have answered you're own question. It may sound craxy because it is. Rehab, jails. thats not where healthy people are. That is many, mant red flags. Stay in the relationship and stay sick. The end of alcholism and addiction is a miserable death. :( Like gravity can't change it. But ther is a solution to you're problem......
