Yes, every time my love has ever gotten into any trouble, there's been alcohol involved. When he's not drinking, he's very rational.

Only things he touched recently were weed/alcohol and he tried pills/crack for about a week way back and said he's glad he never got hooked on any of them.[/quote]

ONly thing?!...and Tried it for a week?! Don't believe a word of this
think about it...ask who he was with when he "tried" the crack, and then go ask them if he has ever "tried" it again. Would you believe a small child if he told you he "tried" a taste of sugar, and then told you "Whew mommy, I'm glad I never got hooked"....becareful!

Yes, definitely. My hubby was on meth when he committed the crimes, 3 1/2 years ago. Now he is clean and got picked up on a probation violation. If he was not on meth for most of our relationship, he would not have been on probation to begin with. Bad Drugs

My ex husband was messed up too but I believe he has always been an angry person and the drugs and alcohol just helped him release his rage without remorse or feelings. But that is just an excuse for my ex because I believe him to be very mental too.

I agree to this one, My man has been on drugs and alcohol for his past teen and adult yrs close to 19 yrs, he never asked for help but was crying out for help deep inside but nobody wanted to help cause he never wanted it .. But i believe this time has really did him in he is 38 yrs old and he knows its time to grow up , he knows he is just runing his life and his family and i believe this time has made him relize it as much as we all was hoping!!

I will NO MATTER what stand by man but he knows i wont oput up with it anymore!! its either the drugs or me!! i been down the same raod and been clean for 3 1/2 yrs and i have no intention on letting anyone or anything come in bewtween my soberity i fought way to hard for this!!!


So i do believe he will be a man and be strong about everything and keep his soberity himself!!!

Wish you all well!

Yes, My boyfriend was way messed up, his addiction led to his crime, I wasn't together with him when he got in trouble, but shortly afterward, I wish I was with him before it happened, cause it never would haved he quit using when we got together.

The thing is our justic system has no intention of rehabiliting people that get incarcerated, let alone trying to provide counseling for those addicted to drugs and alcohol. The government needs to make a concerted effort towards rehabilitation, provide job training, intense counseling, interventions for relapses. This would really be beneficial for the inmates and their families.

Ok heres my husbands story. He used to be with this other girl for 4 years, she tried to kill herself when he left her( she did not die!), and he didnt take it to well that someone he had cared about tried to hurt herself when he realized they werent meant for each other. She had gone crazy, stole his money, crashed his car, cursed his mother out etc. He got hand surgury a month later and they gave him percocets. He became addicted(very common) i met him a year later. I didnt notice it, because i only knew him as someone addicted but once i found out a few months later i put a stop to it he cleaned up and i was head over heels He got addicted again due to his heroin addicted scum of a brother whose done nothing but lie and steal from us, he tried kicking the heroin by doing perc and Rob fell back into that life style. He didnt do his crime for the drug but he was on it when it happened so he wasnt thinking clearly. He says prison saved his life, he feels great and never wants to give up on life. He says the day i met him i saved his life because he knows he would have overdosed and he fell so in love with me he couldnt leave me here without him. Hes getting his GED and welding certification when he goes to prison, the mans been clean for almost 5 months and has plans for our life. I'm so proud

yes my hubby is where he is today because of drugs.. meth was his drug of choice. Honestly, I think him getting caught and going to prison actually saved his life. Ive never seen him look so healthy. I pray every day that he can beat it this time.

He started with drugs and alcohol when he was a teenager. I always knew he was into stuff (we were childhood friends) but I never knew how bad. We lost touch, he was high on coke and drunk when he did his crimes. We werent together during those times. Nobody (his family) ever held him accountable. His mother always gave him more money and tried to cover it up and would baby him. When we started dating seriously I still didnt know the extent. I thought he was only into pot and drinking, which was bad enough. Not until he was picked up on DUI warrants did I know that he was into coke too. (which was from before)
Prison saved him and us. Who knows if he would've O.D.ed one day or if we would've made it through all that drama.
