    Need help dealing with my boyfriend who is an adict
    An_250153 posted:
    This has been a serious roller coaster. My boyfriend lied and lied to me about being on drugs. Basically told me it was his past and was 3 years out of rehab. I have known him my whole life and thought wow thats great he is doing so well. He lied the whole time he was still using Roxy. His parents tried to get me to see it but i just wanted to beleive him because i loved him so much. Finally he agreed to go into a program which the family was so happy about because they were never able to get him into a program and i finally did. He started the program end of feb and was doing so well but we realized he relapsed about 2 weeks ago. I tried and tried to get it out of him finally admited to me that he did. Everytime i am upset or dont trust him and try to talk to him he tells me i am going to push him to do more drugs. I dont know how to speak to him with out getting him upset. I just have so many questions and just want someone to relate to. I have tried alanon but could not relate to anyone in that specific meeting. Am going to try more. Does anyone know other programs i can go to or online support groups. I love him so much and he is really trying but i need to help myself or this will never work. Just dont know what to do always have such bad anxiety and breaking down because i need help dealing with this but how?

    I suggest you try more AlAnon meetings because that's where you will find people who are in similar circumstances. Also, if you are in a city/area that has treatment centers, you may find one that has a Family Program.

    Here is a helpful AlAnon slogan: "I didn't cause it, I can't control it, and I can't cure it".
