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….

Denial of Addiction is so common it’s almost trite to talk about it, but it can be over come if the people around the addict/alcoholic keep trying!
