My boyfriend and I have been in a relationship for 4 years, he has been an addict for 3 of those 4 years, and we have two children together. One thing I can say is that he is a great father, he loves his babies and they love him. Our relationship has been very rough. We have had many breakups and separations, and a lot of our relationship has consisted of fighting, anger, resent, and betrayal. On the other hand our relationship has also been full of love, joy, and happiness. It all just depends on his addiction at the time. He is currently addicted to prescription pain pills and also has issues with marijuana. I have tried so hard for so long to help him quit, but nothing has worked. It seems like no matter what the consequences are he will always choose drugs. He has tried to quit multiple times but he always goes right back the first chance he gets. I love this man and I know he loves me, he is just sick and needs help and I feel so terrible because I can't give him the help he needs. Every time I try to help him or get him help he just pushes me away, so I try to just support and understand him. I don't want to give up on this man, I know he can do it, I know he has it in him, I just don't know how to make him believe that.
