Partner back on heroin
Posted by cazzy on 17 January 2014.
I find myself sitting here wondering how I've put myself in this situation yet again. I must be stupid cause I've left my partner before but he told me he was clean and I believed him and we got back together, but I'm sure he's using again, all the signs are there, not coming home from work for at least 2 hours after he's finished, never got any money, mobile phone numbers on bill that are rung many times in same day, short tempered and abusive. We lost the last 2 homes we had due to debts and looks like this will be same, I'm paying rent and he's paying nothing. Just don't know what to do now, my children are no longer interested and I don't blame them they've helped me so much and they have there own lives and families and it breaks my heart to say we are no longer as close as we were (they are not my partners children). I no longer have any friends as they stopped coming to see me as they knew about his addiction, I don't go out except work and then he accuses me of seeing men. I know I have to sort this but at 54 years old I'm struggling to start over yet again.
