My story relates to my partner, who has battled addiction for half of his life. Gambling, weed, alcohol, heroin, crack and more. He has spent many years in prison and when he was out he was thieving, burgling, borrowing and robbing just to feed his habit. But the habit always got out of control and so he continued in his cycle. Since we have been together I have seen him go back to his old habits and go back on the crack and heroin around three times. All of these times he also ended back in jail the second time I lost my baby at 20 weeks and the third time he went back I was 7 months pregnant and in hospital. Yes like so many of you I have endured police raids, missing money, stress, threats, vandalism, police harrassment etc but now we are happy, we are settled, it is early days but I have hope. We have two boys and I hope this can keep him straight ...
