You have to make the choice to walk away now. You should know something about drug addicts...you can't believe a word they say. Even though they may be able to hold down a job and be otherwise productive members of society, it's generally a losing proposition for those involved in their inner circle.

Drugs like cocaine and opiates are particularly hard to quit because there is such a comedown when not taking them that addicts will do almost anything to keep their brain chemicals from turning their day into a dark, depressing void.

If he's an opiate addict, he may turn to heroin, which may expose you to HIV, hepatitis, and a lot of other blood-born diseases. Are you ready for that? Or ready to see him lying next to you one morning, his skin an odd shade of blue, cold to the touch?

If you actually think he's a good guy who's just in the grip of a drug addiction, you have to stop seeing him until he gets things under control. Otherwise your life will be consumed by drama.

Get away ASAP, nothing good will come of dating a drug addicted guy. If you are more important than the drugs, it will motivate him to quit. Otherwise you are enabling not helping him.

Itchy means he is snorting heroin.

It would also make him constipated and maybe prone to nod off a bit.

Some meth freaks itch also - that is because they get freaked out and think insects are crawling on them. They also can develop skin disease from lack of proper nutrition.

Sorry to hear it. I'm not "against recreational drugs" - in fact, I think all drugs should be legal. But the real measurement here is whether this drives his life. I know folks that smoked dope every day of their lives and were lawyers, doctors, contractors, great family guys and gals, etc.

I also know people on pain pills who live perfectly normal lives - or, in fact, better than without the pills. Same goes with drinking - some people can do things in moderation and be good with it.

But if he is truly an addict and that drives his every move and his life - bad news.

For your sake the title of your thread should have been "Help my ex boyfriend was a drug addict.

Go to Naranon or Alanon, run do not walk away. Being in a relationship with someone in active addiction is like being on a elevator that only travels in one direction, Down!

The only way to let good into our lives is to let go of the bad.

You must free yourself from this relationship in order to find someone who is fully available to love you in the way that you deserve.

The sooner you do so, the sooner you will find true love and happiness.

Hugs and best wishes.
