I feel like I failed by

Hi ginger You haven't failed I'm in a similar situation my boyfriend is addicted to coke and he lies and manipulates me all the time. One minute he will say he has had enough and will do something about it but the very next day he is back doing it again .yesterday I came back from seeing my dad who is sick to find he has pawned my laptop for drugs. I am so angry at him. My only advice is to try looking after yourself easier said an done I know but going out with friends will help take your mind off of what's going on. I've learnt that they will only get help when they fully admit they have a problem and really want to quit. Trying to make them get help wont work in the long run . Just know that your not on your own

My brother won’t admit he’s still using by

Hi I know what you are going through my partner has been addicted to cocaine for about 4 years he has admitted that he has a problem and is now trying to get clean but it's still a struggle. Your son won't get help until he realises he has an addiction and needs help. I can't really give advice but try to get out and find things for you as it's good to get some relief from whats going on. Try not to give him money which I know is hard when they are begging. I hope your son realises that he has a problem and gets the help he needs

Heartbroken by

I really feel for you. My partner of 7 years has been addicted to cocaine for about 3/5 years he once went 5 weeks clean but when he had a bad day went back to it. He says he really wants to stop and gets suicidal but he doesn't seem to deal with stress well at all. Last year I broke down and told his family at first they were trying to support him and get him help but they have now given up. There are sometimes when I feel so skin. I can't really offer any advice but I know what you are going through

Frustrsted by

I have been with my partner for nearly 8 years. For the last 4 he's been addicted to cocaine and is dependent on alchoal. I'm at my wits end he disappears in the middle of the night and has drained our savings. He's about to loose his job and we have had our window as smashed. I thought we had turned a corner recently as he went to the doctors about his depression and was put on anti depressants and went 5 weeks clean. But now he's got back on it and on weed I just don't know what to do anymore. If I chuck him out he will be homeless and I don't think I can live with the guilt but I can't take my h more of the lying stealing its affecting my own mental health . Sorry about the long post
