Just got out of a relationship with a recovering methany other drug he could get his hands on Loving a recovering addict can be challenging, but it can also be very rewarding..I will never date a recovering ex-addict or alcoholic.

But if you think that there is any possibility that they can do what they need to do to change their life, you might be the strength when they're weak. Don't enable them, don't give them money or buy them what they want, but offer to take them to a clinic. Offer to do anything that you can to set them free.
We began a relationship.6 months later, I relapsed. Our relationship was suffering because I was putting my drug addiction before the relationship.

She is a wonderful stepmother to my daughter, and they love each other with the fullness of a true mother/daughter relationship. Like I said, don't allow yourself to be hurt again and again. Maybe more than you can offer, but for the love of God, if you love them, TRY! Or, do nothing, and when they die from overdose, as so many of my friends have (and as one just did, last week; she died from a heroin overdose, it had been cut with fentanyl.
