Eventually he relapsed and went from snorting to shooting. By that time, so he wouldn't inject all those drugs himself, I would use too. I never got addicted to heroin though.... my drug of choice was crack cocaine. We moved into our own place and started to use Crack cocaine on a daily basis.
I would steal money from my family and sell my possessions to get the money to pay for our habits. Eventually my mother figured out what was going on and practically dragged me kicking and screaming to treatment. My family wanted me to leave my boyfriend, but I couldn't. They gave me an ultimatum, but I didn't care.
It has now been 4 years since I last used... and I am still with my boyfriend. We are both clean, sober, and have good jobs. We have a 2-year-old son and everything is going well. There are still good days and bad days but with prayers and Faith, we manage to get by!
This story is for anyone who thinks that they have nothing to live for and have no future because they will always be addicts. Just remember where there's a will there is a way. You can do anything you put your heart and mid to. It takes time, but it will get easier!!! I promise :)
