I have been to al-anon, when he was drinking...he stopped that and moved on to bigger and better things
The group I went to had a christian bent which didn't suit me. I think I would benefit from nar-anon, not to deal with his problems but to help me over the ones I thought I already was over!
He does buffer, and can't cope with stressors (so he thinks) without snorting, smoking, popping or drinking something. There were signs of this early on in our relationship, but the abuse didn't get into full swing until about 3 years ago. Prior to that, he would have never touched any hard drugs and in fact looked down on those who did. He went from being very rigid to being totally out of control - threw all his morals out the window, he claims.
My Prince Charming turned into a toad! One of those Amazonian ones you can lick...
So what is the deal with meth...it's like speed?
