  • And when he goes--you need to go to Al-Anon or a comparable group to help you deal with your side of the addictive life. Even if you don't use, you have been affected. There is a reason you were attracted to an addict....and if he gets help and gets clean but you don't understand your side--chances are it won't last for either of you.

  • Ummmmm thats because he's a addict dear!!! they cannot quit just cause they want to its something he needs right now, you have to convince him to get treatment even if he has to go away to a rehab center..... good luck im sure you have your work cut out for you!!!

  • Talk to him. You can be nice, but firm. Let him know that the first step is to follow through with what he says. Give him the names/numbers to local centers.

  • Hey, sounds like he might have some issues he's having a hard time dealing with. Be sweet to him and tell him you will take him to detox and be there for him when he gets out! Tell him to try really hard for himself and for you. If he fails...have him try again. I use to be a drug addict and it took me several times before I got it right.
