You need to remember that this is not your fault. You did not force him to do drugs. You did not force him to join the lifestyle he grew accustomed to. IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT!!! You need to remember that. If you were there when this person needed you the most then that is all you could. Addicts are manipulative and they will hide the fact that they are doing drugs. They will put themselves in isolation just to get drugs. You have no reason to feel guilty. I know how hard it is to love someone you care about. Time will help, it does not heal all wounds, but it will help. Good luck.
