Beverley saved my life
Posted by Tattersley79 on 9 January 2014.
Im 34 years old and been with my partner 10 years, our relationship has been turbulent but I love her and likewise, A few years ago I started using heroin and kept it to myself for as long as possible then the inevitable happened and my girl found out. She was upset and i thought i would lose her but she did stand by me. it has been rocky and iv lied and stole from her iv put her thru hell but still she has tried her hardest to help me and now im writing on this blog becasue i owe my life to her, Id like to let people out there know that if you turn your backs on that loved one who is mixed up with H then how can you expect them to come back from it. Beverley dug her heels in deep and really tried hard to help and for a while she got me on the straight and narrow but i have lapsed and iv broke her heart but she has always been there and always got me back up on my feet. we broke up recently and i moved out which made me hit the stuff real hard. although we had split she was still in daily contact trying to make sure i was okay and not going to kill myself with the stuff, somehow she managed to get hold of my mum who lives miles away and told her everything, my mums then came and picked me up and made me do my rattle and clean my self up. i am now clean and its all down to the help i got from bev becasue without her perseverance and hard work id have been lost to the smack a long time ago but instead of turning away she stuck by me and she saved me so for those of you who have loved ones that you think cannot be saved or it isnt worth the hassle well it is, becasue one day if you keep at it they will realise and they will be stopped. Bev now livbes apart from me but i still speak to her every day i love her with all my heart and im so sorry for what i have put her thru and its all down to H. I hope one day she will forgive me for the hell i casued our relationship and if that day comes i will take the second chance and never let it go. for those people out there that have the situation where you can either turn your back or help id say help everytime becasue if you love that person then surely they are worth saving
