cheating while an addict
Posted by rjs on 30 October 2015.
Ive been with my boyfriend 9yrs and we have 4 children together. The first 6yrs were brilliant and we got on so well then he started using cocaine and drinking...alot! He'd always done it but it had only been social so I didn't see it as a problem, but then he started using daily, from about 5.30am before work until he finally went to bed at about 2-3am. He would dissappear for days on end with no contact, and then when he was at home he was just so angry towards me and the children, and would use anything as an excuse to walk out again. He also started lying about everything, where his money was going, where he was, who he was with, literally everything. Anyway this went on for about a yr and then he decided to start selling it and hanging round with some really nasty people, during this time he was out in the pubs drinking, getting other girls numbers and sleeping with prostitutes! He finally came out and told me everything about 2 months ago...this only happened because hes now clean and is attending NA and to be able to follow the 12 steps properly he has to tell the truth. Im absolutely heartbroken finding all this out and dont know what to do now. He says hes sorry and that when he was on it he just didn't care about what he was doing or who he was hurting. He says his life just revolved around cocaine and the lifestyle that came with it. Sober hes a completely different person but im still struggling coming to terms with how the drugs made him behave and if being an addict really is a good enough excuse to lie and cheat?
