He told me about his past about 3 weeks after us meeting and with hindsight if I'd of known what came with it I'd of run a mile!!!
First things first, he is definitely not using and hasn't during the time we have been together. He has however had a drug habit for the majority of his life - starting when he was 13 and only stopping 6 years ago - he is 33.
He has been clean for almost 6 years and we have been together for 4.
My partner and father of two of my children is an ex heroin addict.
He used heroin, cocaine, crack, meth, amphetamine, basically anything he could get into a syringe or up his nose.
4 years on however I am starting to fall out of love with him, and resent the fact I feel like I have a fifth child rather than a partner next to me and supporting us.Since we met he has regularly called me names - which is my pet hate, and just recently the things he has been saying to my kids really upsets me.As you can imagine this causes problems within our relationship and with him and my two other children.At first I found it quite endearing he was so "useless" as he told me everything about his past, childhood etc and know that his way of coping with things was to take drugs.The problems I have, or I should say we have is that due to his excessive drug use, he is immature.
