I don't even know where to begin, my partner is a drug addict primarily cocaine but alcohol or any other drug also becomes a problem. We've already been through so much together. He went to prison for 3 1/2 years a year into our relationship and was clean for a while at the end of he's sentence. Upon release he relapses over and over and a lot of the time somehow blames me for not making our home a nice place to be or moaning to much, I've tried not to be this way. He recently started meetings and got a sponsor and things were going well but he's family contact him constantly about going round as they use as well but they don't see it as a problem and he'll be fine if he just has a few!. I've tried to keep him away from them but how can I when they are he's family. For a while I even convinced myself that he is right and why should I be so bothered by him using, he deserves a release but deep down I knew it's not right. I have kicked him out many times when he's relapsed not that he comes home and I'm always telling myself it's the last time but how can I just walk away from him I love him so much and when he's winning and fighting he's demons everything can be so good. I can't let go of all the pain he's already caused me but I know I need to learn to and I'm searching for the right way to support him or to walk away I need help xx
