Addicted to meth

Discussion in 'Methamphetamine / Meth' started by Another gma on meth, Mar 7, 2019.

  1. I'm doing okay. Not feeling so positive today. I'm having trouble in my personal life. I have a boyfriend, who also does meth. We've been together 5 years and I love him alot. I feel we were made for each other. We have so much in common and I've never felt so able to be completely honest with another person. For the most part we've gotten along really well. But lately we have had some trouble. I think he wants to break up. I don't want this to be a reason for me to not move forward. But I don't know if I am strong enough to do this and deal with breaking up. I am feeling so overwhelmed right now.

    I'm sorry you are going through that on top of trying to get sober. If he doesn't want to it may be the reason he wants to break up which might be a good thing. Even if it doesn't feel like it. It would be really hard to stop if he is still using. Hang in there. We are here for you.

    If your boyfriend doesn’t want to give up meth, breaking up might actually be the best thing for you, @Another gma on meth. I know that probably isn’t what you want to hear, but remember: YOUR life and YOUR well-being should be first and foremost. Always. You’re embarking on a journey that will make you a much better, healthier person. You need positive influences in your world; not negative ones. YOUR LIFE MATTERS!

    You are partially correct but don't be a slave to the profession you choose and what it's taught you...expand your thinking there is more than just mental health at play but I do agree a psychologist is the way to go
