Hi all! I am not new to addiction. While growing up both of my parents abused alcohol and various drugs. I have cousins who are addicted to pills, cocaine, marijuana etc. I am now in a relationship with a man who has an addiction to cocaine. It wasn't always the case. We've been together for 6 years now. For the first 3-4 years he never did anything except drink. Where we live, it seems to be a pretty common drug. I never touch drugs myself and have never personally been in the grasp of addiction. He currently uses a few times a week. He can't go out to drink without using. I am so terrified for him. I worked very hard to get away from this life when I was younger .. What can I do to help him? To help me deal with his addictions better? I have been dealing with depression and anxiety myself and worrying about him makes it a lot worse. He is also suffering from depression due to the drug use. Any suggestions ?
