Hello, Im a 23 year old mother to a beautiful 6 month old baby girl. My partner was a regular meth user for about 6 years, but because we were mostly long distance, I wasn't aware of the severity of his addiction. Once I found out I left, but found out I was pregnant shortly after. He's been clean off meth for about 7 months now (still smokes weed and drinks daily) but I'm wondering what the long term emotional effects can be? He's become so emotionally unavailable, He's incredibly self centered, doesn't help me with our child hardly at all, we don't connect like we used to, he's terribly lazy, spending most of his time on his phone smoking and drinking. Does this have anything to do with permenant damage done by long term meth use? Don't know what to do and feel like we might be better off without him, even though it breaks my heart to think that.
