my partner of 15 years a drug addict
Posted by jojo19854 on 25 September 2014.
Myself and my partner have been together for 15 years and have 4 beautiful children he started using when my daughter was born in 2003 it was only social then and didn't bother me all too much but over the years it has regulated and much of the blame is all my fault he is now totally addicted to speed he takes it all the time and gets no sleep and does not eat which obviously has put a massive strain on us as a family I feel so alone I have friends that support me but no one will ever stand up to him as he can be a bully not even his family will say anything I try all the time but just get accused of nagging him and I want him to stop fore and I am selfish he needs serious help as it is affecting his health massively he can't remember anything anymore and he acts very strange after a few days it is like he goes into his own world he will dissapear for hours with no phone or money and drive around he is always unsettled which unsettles the whole household I am so mad at him for putting us through everything but he needs help he will not admit the problem he has as he likes to pass the blame to me and say if I wasn't the way I was then he wouldn't do it bit I think in my situation anyone would get fed up I do everything at home I work and look after 4 children do all school runs too he does nothing he can't even hold down a job I just need to know what to do also the home we live in is in his name so I can't just go either I am so torn he needs help but I feel so alone I hope there is someone that can relate to me thanx for reading x
