I completely understand your situation and feeling of hopelessness. I too have a boyfriend addicted to herion that has also used since he was about 16. He is now 53 with many attempts at recovery but always ending up using again. As you know..typical addict behavior. My situation is somewhat different in that I too am an addict, a crack cocaine addict. We never used together but we had to separate.I moved back to my parents in a nearby state and tried to stay clean. Of course I used again, and again, and again. I am a binge user who completely disappears out of site for anywhere from 3 to 14 days at a time using drugs and living as many addicts do. Out there in dangerous environments doing anything and everything to get the next fix, not eating or sleeping the whole time. When I am exhausted and sick,(and not in jail)I return to my upper middle-class parents home. I then go through the redicule,tears, disappointment,reprocussions and depression of myself AND my family again.It is devistating to the addict as well as those who love them. Hope, recovery, peace and freedom become foreign words. It is a true gift of God that I am still alive. My boyfriend is a daily herion user. We always pray and pray.God is always with us. He must be, and he must have a plan for us because God would never want his children to continue to live or die in addiction. That is OUR choice. Man is given choices but God never expects us to go through life alone. He is there for us to reach out to and he expects us to be there for each other as long as we do not put ourselves in harms way.NA can serve that purpose if our loved ones feel harm, hurt and the pain we cause them. We do fail at cultivating our relationship with God and building our spirituality on a consistant, every day basis. Also a necessity is a recovery program to stick with NO MATTER WHAT. NA guarantees recovery if one follows the suggestions and the path of other recovering addicts but GOD IS A MUST! I completely believe this. Many times families lose faith and hope, and are tired of being hurt themselves so they distance themselves as far away as possible. Tough love is what they call it. It helps the addict not to have enablers allowing the cycle to continue. NA will not enable but will continue to always be there until the addict can finally prove to themselves as well as their loved ones that it's ok to be an active part of their lives...sober! Don't get me wrong, I am not an advocate for NA, but I am only able to speak on what I have experienced and what has worked for me in the past. Any recovery program works if you stay with it.
I pray for you, your boyfriend, myself , my boyfriend and all others suffering from any form of addiction. May God fill your heart with patience, love and faith in yourself. May God protect and speak not only in whispers but in explosive guidence for all of us to hear. May God put another human into our lives to help us in our recovery, and Lord, help us to be "still" long enough to see and hear them in our presence. Thank your Lord for your forgiveness and bless us in forgiving ourselves. Only with you God will we defeat this Devil and his mission to kill and destroy love and life. Thank You for the chance and choice to LIVE!

I Pray for him to have the strength. I pray that a piece of him can shine through and with God gain the strength to get through this. Heroin has been a constant enemy in my life. I grew up with a mother who was an addict. Never could see the true demons, until i was 13. She had been doing better for a year, and then an old friend came back into her life and they began dating after that everything went down hill and i could no longer be the number one in her eyes because this addiction blinded her. She became this person i didnt even no, a stranger to me. And she didnt stop until i got sent to live somewhere else. She was blessed with the strenght to fight it and for 2 or 3 years she has been okay. She was still with him, but she had the strenght not to do it. The DEA busted down our door and he is now in jail for 8 years or longer. And that is the best thing that could have happened for him and her. She has moved on, and realizes and see the important things in life again. And once again i can call my mom my best friend. Any one who is fighting this addiction or problem is in my prayers everyday and night.

Dear God. I pray for all addicts to try and see the light. My late husband was a heroin user for 20yrs and managed to stop and live a decent life for 17yrs before he died of cancer. I pray that all addicts too will find the strenght and love to help them give up their habits. In Jesus name. Amen.
