I have never had any addictions so I don't know from experience. But I am wondering, do you think falling in love with someone special can help? I ask because my cousin is a recovering alcoholic. He tried so many times to get sober. But then he met a wonderful lady. At first he still battled his addictions. SHe almost left him over it and that seemed to be a wake-up call for him. He has been sober about 2 years now.
