Relationship and drug user?

Hey! Everybody, I am new here an had a few questions and wanted to hear feedback about my situation. My boyfriend, had an overdose a few months back. It was a hard thing to realize and see him in the hospital. He later then went off to rehab, and was an out-patient. He is out now, getting sober for 2 months now and I am so proud of my boyfriend!

Problem is.. I think that with his meetings and trying to stop the urge he might now have time for me. He keeps saying, that he wants to stay in this relationship, but this is a change for him. Being sober & being in a relationship. I ways do my best to focus on him and getting better. I don't talk about my problems.. Or my feelings because I don't want him to worry.

Any suggestions? Relationship advice for a cocaine addict girlfriend? Any tips? Please help me!! I am a college psych major and everything isn't working. Thanks so much! The more ideas and opinions the better!

Hi Dreamcatcher Welcome to SR. You will get a lot of support here in the friends and family forum. Have you tried going to Al Anon/Narc Anon or to Coda? I personally benefited a lot from Al Anon.

Hey! That's for responding! Are those people? Or meetings for the narcotics addict family and friends?

Those are support groups for people who have a loved one who is an alcoholic or an addict.

Dreamcatcher,

Please don't miss out on the 'stickies'----those semi permanent
posts ABOVE the main posts in each section. They are a compendium
of wisdom.......navigational charts, if you will----of the ocean of
addiction.

I hope you find them as incredibly useful & illuminating as I did!
