Can't stop obsessing, how do I let it go?
I met this guy a few weeks ago, stayed at his house with him and his roommates for a few days, he's the last person I used with (8 days ago). He's a decent guy and we have a lot in common, including our drug problem. I have 8 days clean now, he's still using, and will probably continue to use. I don't have any contact info for him. I know where he lives but I don't have a car, which is probably a good thing right now. I know hanging out with him could not be a worse idea. No matter how decent he is, he's still a gateway into using for me, and I am serious about staying clean. He goes to the church I used to go to in high school, and I've thought about going back just so I might run into him, but it's a REALLY big church, so there's not much chance of that... I just can't get him off my mind. Something about him really clicked with me I guess, I don't know what it is, really. I tend to get these fanatical obsessions that take me forever to get over, it's really hard, and it gives me great anxiety about meeting new people, especially ones I'm attracted to, but even more-so, ones I have a lot in common with. This guy was both. I want to get him out of my mind, and the only way I did that when I got like this over someone in the past was to go on a drug binge. I have no healthy way of dealing with this.

Go to meetings!!! If you go to AA meetings you will find other people who are going through the same thing. You make new friends too. It will help with anxiety and the obsession. Do not sacrifice your recovering for a guy you hardly know.
