The unknown

by Jordan
(Texas)

Working as a waitress I met a guy who came on often. I wasn't so attracted to him but one night I decided I'd give him a chance. After the first date with him I knew I loved him, he had the most beautiful soul and purest heart.

He looked rough, but I thought nothing of drugs. After a couple dates I confronted him on his rough appearance he admitted to having a heroin addiction in his early 20s that he overcame. Unclear of how long he used and how long of his sobriety and I continued the relationship. It was the best summer of my life a few hiccups here and there but no drug use that I knew of.

Then, stress at work became an issue and things started to not add up after calling his family to come get him(they lived in another state) I found out from a family member he had been taking pills for about a week. The time before he left he was very different. Things always seemed to not go in his favor and he was always tired.

I stayed with him and decided to work a long distant relationship which lead to me finding out from one of his friends he had been using the entire time he was away. I loved I lost to addiction.

After finding out I was lied to for a couple months I ended the relationship. I will never loose faith in the person I fell in love with but it will always hurt. Unfortunately, love isn't stronger then addiction....
