Dating an ex drug dealer
As an addict's significant other, you take on that anxiety and worry.You constantly have to be wondering if the person you love has relapsed. Their bond with drugs will be stronger than their bond with you, because drugs are easier.Addicts will also be more forgiving with blunders made during the relationship for similar reasons.Instead of walking on eggshells in a relationship, you can approach it confidently since you know the relationship will probably survive.

Recovering addicts are (hopefully) going to meetings and therapy sessions regularly.
Overcoming an addiction involves being as open and honest as possible with those close to you, talking out your problems and frustrations and learning how to live a sober, satisfying life.
