My boyfriend is addicted to cocain and I have no one to talk to by

Hi Bella, I'm sorry to read your post and sad that you have no one in your family or a friend you can talk with.

However, if you felt that you need a bit more help for yourself, maybe you would contact us at The Icarus Trust. We are a charity that offers support to people like yourself because we know how hard it is to live with another's addiction. If you contact us I can put you in touch with one of our trained and experienced people who might be able to help you.
