Can't stop using cocaine?

by Sam

I do cocaine once a week and am not able to stop and I don't ask my wife to help when I have withdrawals. She is powerless and feels I will take myself out by overdosing. I don't want help from anybody. How do I take my first step in trying to quit?

Help me please.



Thanks,

Allow Help
by: Ned Wicker

Dear Sam,

You say you want help, yet you write that you don’t allow your wife to help. You don’t want help from anybody. Great. What is your solution? You only do the cocaine once a week, yet you can’t stop, which tells me that you have a substance use disorder, or addiction.

The dividing line is your inability to choose. You use because you get the cravings, so the choice not to use is taken away from you. But you do have the choice to seek treatment and help from somebody other than you. I share your wife’s concern.

It is time to put your pride aside and allow others to help. Addiction is not a one person disease; it is a family disease, as your problems will impact every member of your family. Your wife stands to lose the most here, so if she’s worried, you need to get smart and take the message.

Cocaine cravings are tremendous, I understand that, but treatment programs can be specifically designed to help you deal with hat issue.

People don’t just solve their own problems with addiction. They do need help and there is no dishonor in asking for it.

It’s time to accept the fact that you are going to need assistance and just allow it to move forward. It’s time to get better, be a good husband and live a long, healthy life.


Good luck!

Be grateful you're addiction has not taken you to an every day binge user. Cocaine is a horrible addiction and the only way to stop is to man up and say no-way when you get cravings. You should maybe change your routine and start noticing what day, time, and place you get the cravings and stop.

Good luck!
