If you are in a relationship with someone who is a drug addict, it is best to leave the relationship.
You may believe that somehow things will change. When there is so much emotional investment in a relationship, it is natural to think in this way.
Many people who are in these types of relationships tend to cling to hope by believing that somehow their love will get them through this.
Life doesn’t really work that way.
Your drug addicted partner may tell you that they will stop.
They may tell you that they are beating this addiction and you should stick with them.
Blinded by your love for them, you believe them and stay.
What typically ensues is failure.
The drug addiction is so strong that this partner simply doesn’t follow through with their promise.
There may be moments when things seem to be going well.
Your partner seems to be sober.
They are laughing and having fun with you, paying you a whole bunch of attention.
You then believe that the relationship has now turned a corner and everything is going to be just fine.
What you are not seeing is what your partner is doing behind your back.
You don’t see the stash of drugs they may have hidden away in the ceiling or in the closet.
They can be very sly with this.
They gave you a false sense of security because they didn’t want to lose you.
This only takes you down a very bitter path.
A path that leads to misery and desperation.
This drug addicted partner that you may love or care for simply doesn’t have the same feelings for you.
It may be difficult for you to understand this but you should try to.
They are way more in love with something else.
As long as their love for the drugs is more than their love for you, they will not change.
Why stay in such a relationship?
Your partner is not willing to change and is dragging you down with them.
The damage that this could cause you psychologically could affect you for life if you choose to stay.
You are better off leaving this relationship no matter how much you think things may change or that your love could conquer all.
Evidently, it hasn’t.
What more evidence do you need?
Staying in a situation like this would only drag you into the mess.
You may not even be aware that you are slipping into a depression until it hits you.
You should guard against allowing things to get this out of hand and leave while you still have your mental health intact.
