  5. Can a heroin addict love someone?

Is anyone on here that is an ex addict please tell me what an addict means when they say love you or that they miss you. I'm a bit conflicted because their actions tell me something completely different.

When an addict tells you that they love you they mean it. I never once told some one that I love them and didn't mean it but my addiction was so strong that it pulled me in the opposite direction They mean it, as much as any of us mean it. But they are COMPELLED to feed their addiction, even when it goes against everything they want.

Although a heroin addict may sometimes say I love you just to gain something from it nine times out of 10 if they keep you in their life in general it's because you mean something to them. Well that's how I worked anyway, hope that helps.

I am sure that your loved one sincerely loves you and misses you however, addiction can make someone a walking contradiction. The only thing that you need to remember is that your loved one is sick and will need to get help and want to get help in order to get better. Underneath the chaos and turmoil that is their addiction they are still on the person that you’ve always known and loved. Even if they dont act like they love you, please trust that they absolutely do. It’s just that addiction has hijacked their brain and taken over. Unless they get help, this is what you can expect.
