Long story short, my boyfriend was a dating someone addicted to xanax drug addict opiates and his relapse spiraled out of control over the last couple of months.
Being in clover dating app reddit long distance relationship and seeing him very rarely made it very hard to see. Two weeks ago he got arrested and went to jail. I've been sick to my stomach, have random crying spells and feel like I'm in a constant state of exhaustion feeling like a major part of my life has come to a standstill. About a week before his arrest he came to me about wanting to be done with all pills his prescription for xanax and percocet and was sick of depending on them.
Was this the start of him wanting to seek help? I'm stuck between supporting him IF and ONLY IF he wants to help himself and make this a part of his past, or run away because if this is the man I end up with for the rest of my life this could be a vicious cycle forever? I was supposed to move to where he lives in a couple of months, which I've already decided dating someone addicted to xanax out of the question.
He has said if he has to move where I am he will do it. So is it wrong for me to support him if he wants recovery? We had as perfect of a relationship as anybody could, and he brought so much happiness into my life. Could him moving to where I am be a fresh start for him, or is he just BSing me and an addict is going to use wherever they are? Sorry for all the questions, turns out that wasn't too short. I hope I don't sound like a broken record from earlier posts, but like I said I've never felt so lost All I can say about your situation is that moving to a new place will not make him stop being an addict.
If he is addicted, he will dating someone addicted to xanax it wherever he happens to live.

Is moving to a new area a guarantee for success, of course not, but it's a start If you care dating someone addicted to xanax him, don't give up! The greatest successes come from the greatest fights!
Join Date Mar Posts I can kind of give you my little story here and then some advice that may help. I was addicted to opiates and honestly once you are an opiate addict you will always be an opiate addict. We have to learn how to suppress our cravings, we need therapy, but there will always be that little thing in the back of our heads wanting and craving opiates.
It's a very real thing and as you notice it doesn't take much to spiral out of control. I've relapsed twice since I quit 4 months ago and now I finally feel like I have control over it. What I did is move away, to get away from all the dealers and all my friends who sold and would just temp me with more and more drugs not frieends anymore needless to say.
So I moved in with my parents in Texas and I moved from NH. Would this have help fixed me? Well yes and no. First of all I knew my Mom took morphine pills but also I knew it was good to have a fresh start. Everyone around me rebound dating website I was an addict and I was looked down upon so that wasn't helping either. SO I packed my little Ford Probe with everything I could dating someone addicted to xanax in it and dating someone addicted to xanax near Austin, TX.
Honestly I never felt better, I was actually clean for a little while about 2 weeks, I was at the final stages of my interviews for Apple and then I get a phone call "We're sorry but your background check has not been completed, we're not sure why but the position starts this Monday so we have dating someone addicted to xanax fill it with someone else.
Next time we need someone we will hire you and give you a call if the background check ever comes through. I was a beer sales representative in addition to being a computer technician part time at Staples, I made over 60k a year but I worked 7 days a week and about 70 hours a week, it sucked. So after hearing that news from Apple I totally lost it and started snorting my mothers pain pills. Long story short, moving to a new area can help but make sure it is an area where it appears more difficult to get ahold of opiates.
It's nothing something that you can physically quite and be done with it. Mentally it will be with him for at least years if not his entire life. What I suggest if you are unsure about being with him you honestly have a lot to consider. I don't know the guy like you do. He might be able to recover and pull out of this and be all set for the rest of his life but beware he could also slip and relapse at any point in time of his life. If you are really unsure about it you have to do what you think is right and what will make you happy.
It will not help him in his road to recovery to have someone be mad at him or upset with him if he is actually trying to clean up. He will need a ton of support, it will be very demanding on you. But if you really care and love this man, then it may be worth giving it a shot. I believe moving can physically help the addiction but it is also more of a mental thing, dating someone addicted to xanax gives YOU a fresh new start. You get what you want out of a fresh new start.
If you do decide to take him in and help him go to www. I recommend this, this is the treatment I am doing right now but you have to find a good doctor, who does not keep you on doses for the rest of your life. He would be taking the drug for weeks. This will help clean his system of the other opiates and if he gets a craving and uses a pill it won't make him high because Suboxone clings to all the opiate receptors making all other opiates useless.
Plus Suboxone doesn't give me that "high" while squashing withdrawals and I will taper down to where I wil be taking 1mg a day and then done with hopefully little to no withdrawal effects. Now this is only one thing that may help him. He will need some sort of AA or NA group to go to once a week and talk with other recovering addicts this really does dating someone addicted to xanax Now on top of all THAT support I have this web based forum and I joined Suboxone's Here to Help program and what they provide is discounts on the suboxone drug but they also provide me with a "care coach.
