was i falling for a drug addict the whole time?
Posted by gill33 on 18 November 2014.
i need some advice on what to say and do. I met this boy through work started talking to him he told me he was a recovering addict. I accepted it and liked him for who he was now. meanwhile I hate drugs I never did them I'm totally against them. were still together he was doing IOP programs and staying clean. he then tells me he has to be honest and told me he was going to jail for 30days bc of an old charge from two years ago. I believed him I accepted him and told him I was there every step of the way. I finally thought about it and he isn't jail he is in rehab for 30 days and used jail to cover it up. he has no clue i know. im writing him a letter asking how he is and basically telling him that I know the truth & asking him why he wasn't honest. im confused i don't know if i fell for him or a drug addict? any ideas on what to write to him. I feel betrayed hurt stupid confused and crushed. I still want to be there for him & pick up where we left off. but if I fell for a drug addict I don't think I can do it. but I don't know. any help would be much appreciated thank you!
