I feel so helpless!
Posted by jesssam1 on 12 December 2014.
My partner has been battling with cocaine for some time now and his habit doesn't just effect him it effects all those around him, myself included. I have tried to be supportive, I have tried the soft approach, the aggressive, the crying, I have tried everything that I possibly can. I love this man so very much and it breaks my heart to think that what he is doing could possibly kill him. I worry non stop, wondering has he done it and although every time I catch him out for it and he promises me he can change I know it isn't something he is in control off but that doesn't make it any less upsetting and I often ask myself why am I not enough for him to stop?! The feelings of hopelessness and emptiness are a regular part of my day and I have become depressed as a result of this but will not confide in anyone as this all did not come to light until I was 6 months pregnant, I now have a beautiful 3 month old and I know that although he doesn't do it around her that he shouldn't be apart of her life while he has any dealings with it but at the same time I feel torn because I don't want to give up on him and him get worse but for my own sanity and my daughter I am thinking that is the only way. Has anyone else been in a similar situation and can anyone give me any advice?
