Welcome to Ask an Addict

AskanAddict.com is intended to provide addiction support and advice in a non-judgmental way so that the addict or anyone else that's been affected by an addict will know there are many who understand and eliminate the feeling of being alone. Ask an Addict knows it may be hard to talk with family and friends as many times they just don’t understand. Many have fractured those important relationships in life during active addiction. When it comes to seeking information, likeness, and establishing a strong recovery program who better to ask then someone who has been there! At Ask an Addict we listen and learn, together. Whether your an addict, a recovering addict or have been affected by an addict, we all have that common denominator of addiction.

If I had to use one word to describe our members, it would be the word compassion. (sympathetic consciousness of others' distress together with a desire to alleviate it)

Are these items to be worried about or am I losing my mind?
Let me first apologize for the long post. Those that stick through to the end, thank you. My boyfriend is a recovering addict and he's slipped a few times over the years so I get a little on edge when I find random things that make me suspicious. I've suspected a relapse lately, sadly. On a positive note, they aren't happening as regularly as before, more time in between. However, he's also become sneaker when they happen which depresses me. Anyways, because of the suspicion (and other things that have happened) I took my car and left to look through it. We share a car and I have found things strategically hidden before. I took off the dashboard, the part with the radio (super simple) and there was this brown paper thing. Sturdier than paper with a shiny side and a dull side. From top to bottom in the center of the paper there was brown semi sticky...stuff...on it. I confronted him and he said it was nothing, which I expected either way. The next day I asked him where the paper thing was. He said he threw it away. I asked if he would mind if I looked at it, said it should be on the top (it should have been). It wasn't there. I kept removing items when he started becoming aggravated at me, telling me that I'm worried over nothing and acting like a psycho. I ignore his comments and continue my search. It wasn't. About halfway down I found it. All the brown stuff but a little smudge was gone. I also found a crumpled up cigarette foil that had a really strange look to it. As if the dull side had a "layer" burned off but not really "burned". I would show picutres if there was an option. It's hard to describe these things. Anyways, I know it's a long shot but I just need to know if I'm letting my crazy get the best of me or if I should be more concerned. Anything would help, thank you.

True confession
My AD has gone back to rehab for the 15 th time. Am I glad? Yes. I am also worn down and tired. I really feel just a bit past relieved. No joy. No renewal of hope. I feel rather dead about her. If she stays in rehab, she stays. If she leaves, she leaves. I do not want to go to the family meetings in rehab. I want to take a walk in the woods, and feel alive. I do not want to be with her.i did go to see her when She was in the ER for a few hours, but that was all. I did drive her back to rehab after that, rather than have her take a cab. I told her not to talk During the twenty minute drive. She remained quiet. We did not speak. Whatever it is she has to say, I do not want to hear it. I am done listening to her, I am done hoping. When she has been sober for a year I might be able to listen to her. I can't do these things for her anymore because it is too painful. After I saw her, I went home and cried. Such a beautiful child, so loving, so creative, so talented. Wasted in a life on the street, addicted to heroin and that very life. It is crushing to see her like this. When I think of my daughter, and the life she has, I want to vomit. It is so wrong, so very wrong.
