    Hi I'm new here looking for some advice! Iv been seeing this guy for more than a year I really like him and am happy but Iv been told a few times that that he takes heroin I didn't believe it at first so didn't think much off it but thought I'd ask him anyway just to make sure and I was so surprised when he told me yes he smokes it now and again but said he isn't addicted to it his first time trying it was in prison! I Couldn't believe he'd never told me! Im not sure how often he smokes it or if he even still does but I never had the slightest idea and to be honest if I'd new this before we got together then I'd probably have ran a mile! I though that after a few times smoking heroin you get addicted so why is he not addicted then and have that need yo have it every day as he's told me he can take it or leave it!

    @Weecee26... Welcome to the community and thanks for sharing with us. We're glad you're here.

    I've been a recovery advocate for a dozen years and I don't know anyone personally who can smoke heroin "now and again" with no problems. Does that mean it's impossible? No. But I think it's highly unlikely. Your boyfriend may be telling you something you want to hear in order to keep you around. People who struggle with addiction are master manipulators and liars. I'm not saying your boyfriend is lying to you. I'm just saying you should be very cautious.

    Being involved with someone who uses heroin can be an incredibly challenging and risky thing. Maybe you should sit down and have a heart-to-heart conversation with your boyfriend about his heroin use. Tell him if he can take it or leave it, you'd prefer that he did the latter.

    We are here to help and support you however we can, so please don't hesitate to reach out to us anytime. In the meantime, I'm sending you positive vibes and will keep you and your boyfriend in my thoughts and prayers.

    Thank you so much for replying I really do think that's true and he is only telling me what I want to hear! Iv said to him id never judge someone for takeing it beCouse it doesn't mean there bad people just to see if he'd open up a bit more but still says he doesn't take it every day! The few times we have spoke about it it seems he does no a lot about heroin and how it can take over your life and makes u forget about your problems so that says to me if he wasn't addicted to it then how can he no so much about it? We only see eachother every other day And sometimes we go 4 or 5 days with other even seeing eachother so I really wouldn't no what he does when I'm not with him! But if I was takeing heroin I no I would I wouldn't get involved with someone without telling them I did xx
