My partner and I are addicted to coke
Posted by Woody on 5 April 2017.
I am really struggling with life. After separating from my husband two years ago, who is a good man but suffocated me for years, I went crazy. I met another man who is amazing, generous, honest, loving... but we have a problem (HUGE) problem with drugs. He is self employed, earns a lot of money. But we are facing eviction. We owe money everywhere. We're both parents (I have three living with me, he has one with an ex partner). We are afraid of losing our home, our children. We want to stop and make a safe home for our children. I live in fear constantly and as I don't work ATM and he works sometimes long hours, I get bored and drink . This turns to spending his whole wage packet in a night on crack and cocaine . Sometimes This is 1000 in a week. I hate myself - he does himself. We feel like terrible people. I just want to speak to someone in a similar position as I'm afraid to burden my family.
