  5. Can an addict love?
Asked: 2018-01-07 03:16:09
I fell in love with my boyfriend and now he is a heroin addict. We met and started dating about two years before he got addicted. . I have never had a drug addiction before and I try hard to understand what he is going through. I know i love him regardless of his addiction, but truth be told I have to take care of me and I love myself enough to walk away if I absolutely have to.

For a little hope, I met my woman when I was an addict and a needle user. She stuck by myside and supported me. I ended up getting on suboxone which ive been on for years. Despite getting on suboxone to help me maintain, I wanted to change and I do love my girlfriend so I got help. For me, her tough love was enough.

If your man is deep into his addiction, its not going to change overnight. And of course drug addicts can love but addiction is powerful and take full control. No one can pull him or anyone else out of heroin addiction, the addict has to want it 150% for themselves.
