Justin89 Posted July 7, 2021 Share Posted July 7, 2021 This isn't about me, but about my younger sister. She dated a man who was heavily into drugs, lets say his name was Jerry. Jerry and my sister dated for quite a while, but Jerry started to show signs of drug abuse early into the relationship. My sis didn't didn't think much of it at first, but she started to notice he was tired a lot, and flaked on things out of the blue, saying he had to take a call or something. We thought he was cheating, but I ended up catching him snorting something days later. I told my sis right then and there, and she was in denial. Anyway, fast forward a couple more years, and he started to get abusive. He was also heavily drinking and passing out. My sis was tired of it, and gave him an ultimatum to quit drinking and the drugs. He said he would and he tried, but fell back into his old habits. She ended up breaking up with him, and that was the end of it for 3 years or so. Fast forward again to a few weeks ago, my sis ends up seeing him at a local store, and she said he's looking healthy and is doing well. She then mentions that she's going out to eat with him this weekend sometime, so they can talk about what's been going on these past few years. I told her I thought it was a dumb idea, but she's free to do what she wants. The question at hand. Would you ever let go back into a relationship with an addict? I personally wouldn't, because I know from history how that works. But, if all else, I hope he is truly better and sober and isn't taking drugs anymore.
