Soo.. I took it upon myself to stop using methamphetamine about 2 months ago now. I simply just.. stopped. Except there seems to be absolutely nothing simple about it. My long-term boyfriend continues to use, and it makes incredibly more difficult, despite the fact that he doesn't do it in my presence. It's still something that we are both aware of, and he oftentimes leaves to meet with a friend of his, late at night, not returning home until hours later, typically around 5 o'clock a.m. I don't work outside of the home much, but I do put forth every bit of effort I have, regardless of how much I may feel like I have nothing to give - and try my personal best to be a good mom, and housewife. He works, and helps at home, but I could push myself beyond what I feel I'm able, and I continue to feel like I don't measure up. He's never seen me as an equal when it comes to deserving to use, or receive the same level of love, equal to what I know I'm giving. I'm just rambling, probably.. I don't know. I find myself becoming stronger, and believing in myself in a way I never have before, but with my newfound confidence, has come this hostility towards him because of the drugs, even though everything else between us is good. Help with the cravings.. ?? If there even is anything that can help.

      I can't imagine being able to quit anything while still being around people who use, especially a significant other, so give yourself a pat on the back for that! I don't know what his stance on quitting is or how he feels about it, but he could be jealous that he's unable to quit and is trying (if not consciously) to make you feel worse and get back down to his level? If you can, I'd sit down and talk with him about how you're feeling and what you can do to communicate better with each other

      My ex is currently using meth and it is destroying his mental health and I honestly don’t know if he will ever be normal or healthy again. I’m not sure about what you or your bf used but he used meth that is made with dangerous chemicals that cause psychosis and other drugs to keep people addicted. He lost his job and apartment. You are doing something for yourself that is honestly a true miracle and blessing. I have needed to cut off my ex and not help him because of his drug use and I see a lot of people eventually need to do this with their loved ones who use so they take the responsibility they need to take.I will only help him if he needs a ride to rehab.

      I'm writing this late at night, in the dark and pretty sleepy. I apologize ahead of time for any typos/grammatical errors. I'm typically a decent writer, and can express my thoughts with a certain degree of accuracy, but right at the moment.. not so much.
