Dating a Pain-Pill Addict… He Has Been Clean 1 Year… but I Have Doubts!! Run?

Question by : Dating a pain-pill addict… he has been clean 1 year… but I have doubts!! Run?
I have never even touched a drug. I started dating him a little over a year ago. He had been addicted on and off for over 6 years (he is 32). He was never happy, never had a good job and was miserable so he never got clean.

I met him… realized, it was bad… he went to rehab for 30 days. He has been in NA meetings, has a sponsor and has been clean for 9 months. Has a great job now, a nice truck, we moved in together 6 months ago and I control the money (he only gets a minimal amount in his account every week… it makes me feel better about his sobriety).

He says he loves me with his whole heart – his family has told me that I’m their angel for saving him and that he has never talked about a girl like he does me. He tells me I saved him.

I am 27 – I have been through a lot. I have dated my fair share of men – and I can honestly say, I do love him and think he is my soulmate.

But…. I can’t get it out of my head how people say if someone is a drug addict, they will ALWAYS relapse… whether it be a week from now or 10 years from now, they will.

Is this true? Am I being stupid by sticking by him?

Answer by LeAnne
If you can’t trust him with his own money, you can’t trust him to stay sober. I do believe that addicts can curb their addiction, but it seems as if you do not think he has the ability to stick with it. You should move on before you get too deep.
