    I love a meth addict.... I recently discovered the use and the other activities associates with the use. I was livid..... absolutely beside myself. I spent days reading and learning about the drug after finding the drug and some of the tools required for use. I didn't know what to do, walk away and deal with a broken heart or build the person holding my heart back up.
    I chose the fight. I was given an opportunity to use a couples gift to ask a few questions and I took it. Made my intentions very clear with the first question..... her injection spots. I saw them many times and the bruising was getting worse.
    She came clean with every thing I had suspected and the truth of her infidelity. I love this girl with everything and I know this could and most likely will be a rough journey. I have hope for a brighter future and many happy sober memories.

    How long have you been in this battle? Mine is just beginning and aside from finding the hiding spots and chasing what I think are lies I don't know where to begin. I love her with everything I am, I have never used any drugs other than pot. I am a novice at helping someone with this disease. I can't get my head around how someone so beautiful could be doing this to herself. Should I be more in charge or stand back while she struggles with this?
