Being an addict is not nearly as bad as being sober and loving an addict. Whether it is a family member, spouse or friend. Nothing will screw you up more than being associated with an addict. You can’t save them but they sure as hell can destroy you, and they will.
You’ll waste your whole life waiting for them to change. Sleeping next to them and feeling alone, wondering why they won’t treat you right. You keep thinking it is your fault and you give more and more, hoping that your effort will change things. You’re in love with a lie, this is just the truth that you don’t want to face.
“If you want to be an addict, be an addict. but never allow yourself to blame some else for it”
