Have to break up with him after this relapse

Postby tenacity » Wed Oct 26, 2011 8:40 am

I started dating a man who said he was 12 months sober. I'm a year sober myself.

After a few months during a stay at his home (we live in different states) he
seemed high and when I asked he admitted he was on amphetamines . He walked out of his house and 3 hours later I was told by his sponsor he OD and was in the ICU.

I went home a since then only talked to him on the phone about once a week. Texting every day. He has relapsed twice since.

So I have stopped talking to him. It's awful to understand and want to help yet know you can't. I hate it.

Thanks for sharing. It reminds me of a similar experience from my past.
