is there any help for my boyfriend? Meth user

so, my boyfriend is 19 years old and he's been on crystal meth since he was 14, we've been together 2 years now, it doesn't give him energy like it does most others, it makes him think a lot and causes depressin in him, we argue a lot when he goes to get high with his friends,I refuse to leave him, we've been separated once already because of the legal system for a little while and I want to either wait it out or just accept him for who he is like he wants me to, my thing is, he thinks about the past problems we've had in our relationship during his high and he gets upset or angry and tries to break up with me, when he's sober he's so sweet and loving towards me, it kills me to have to deal with this, he wants to stay high every day, he has no job, his mom and brother support his habit which makes it worse, is there anything at all I can do to help him besides leave him?

How long does it hurt?

When one is on meth and comes down off of a, oh lets say a weeks high, how long does the body hurt? I've heard that ones body hurts horribly when the meth wears off, and that is why the addict is so desperate for another high. If one cannot get access to more, how long does the pain last? Thanks in advancee.   Straightjacket

Can you be an unknowing crack user?

I know this seems like a ridiculous and naive question,  but I have to rule it out. My husband of barely one year was a recovering crack addict when i meant him.  He said he had been clean for 5 years.  I should also add that he is a 100% disabled veteran with ptsd. I really thought he was done with the drugs.  He was 53 when we met and I thought he was too old to keep that up much longer.  Since then (about 3 years ago) he has had 3 relapses that he admits to, and one he had a crazy story about that i no longer believe.  Now i am starting to believe that he has never been totally clean. He is so good at hiding it. The fact that he has got it past me for so long says a lot. Because i don't let things go until i find the truth and i am very thorough. He is a very intelligent man. Yet i will confront him with black and white proof and he will still act like i am crazy and he has no idea what im talking about. He is also very delusional and i assumed that was the ptsd. But i am now wondering if the crack has eaten his brain so badly that he literally doesn't know he is still doing it. Does anyone know if that's possible? For example 3 days ago he came home with about 100 dollars less than he was supposed to have and made up a story that i couldn't prove wrong because i wasnt there. That night he abruptly left with our dog,  who he never takes on a walk and was gone for 25 minutes. He comes back acting very weird.  I confronted him, but he laughed it off. Then came in later and apologized for making me feel suspicious. He kept disappearing down to the basement for no reason. If i ask him why he is going down there he gets mad and says im being a nag.  All night long he kept getting in and out of bed. His eyes looked weird but not dialated. But he did have ativan so maybe that counteracted the effects some. I ended up looking through his call history on the sprint site because he cant delete that. I foung one number that had been dialed almost obsessively that night. They were all one minute calls, at least 20 of them and only one incoming call from that number and they stopped right before the dog walk. I had to threaten divorce to even get him to admit that he called that number. His reason for that is that he was having urges and that was someone he knew from recovery who was giving him support. At the time i couldn't think straight to bring up the fact that those calls were too short for that. Later on i found that he has been calling that same number since at least July. 

I really feel like he believes these lies he tells thats why i ask if he could be so messed up that he thinks he really isnt doing it. Also one thing i am confused about is that i never smelled it. Ive read about what it smells like and i have smelled that in our house in the past but had no clue what it was.

Are the blood spatters on the bathroom mirror really from my husband shaving?  I have dated other guys and I have never experienced this.

Cologne for men

Why does my husband have high-end colognes, practically nothing else high-end, and everytime he claims to spray them in the bathroom they reek and leave a stench throughout the house?

What drug creates a light smell of burnt rubber or maybe burnt plastic when smoked?

My room mate has been smoking drugs in the house since day one. When I moved in I knew she smoked pot. I am familiar with it and know what it smells like--I'm from California. It was ok with me that she smoked it in her room as long as it didn't affect me.

The night I moved in I don't know what was in what she smoked but I woke up in the middle of the night to the smell of weed smoke mixed with something else and I was so inebriated ( I slept in my room with the door shut) that I was dizzy and couldn't walk straight going to the bathroom.

Since then I have noticed that about every 2 or 3 days she smokes something in her room that has a light smell of burning rubber. My room is on the other side of the apartment and I put things in place over the openings at the bottom of my bedroom doors (there are two), and I still get contact high from whatever it is.

In the beginning it would make me feel warm all over, and a little bit nauseous, and then I would just have extra energy and up all night. (I usually sleep like a rock). In addition it makes it so that I feel as if I have a burning feeling on the inside of my skull behind my forehead and can not think of more than one thing at a time (I can usually think of at least 3), it makes it hard to think rationally, or to think anything through. It also causes me to have poor coordination--can not drive with that contact high!! Poor distance perception and poor depth perception and causes me to start feeling angry--not just because of what she did--it seems like it is an effect of the drug itself to get me stuck on anger mode.

Anyone have any idea what this could be? I know when she is on it she is up all night and walks around slamming doors and stoming around the house--when sober she walks quietly and usually does not slam doors. I am thinking that she is smoking adderall or meth, but not sure.

I tried to talk to her about it to see if I could at least get her not to smoke it in the house--she has friends she does it with--do it at theirs if she must! But to no avail. She just lies and starts insisting that she doesn't ever get high or drunk.

what should I do and why. Feeling heart broken

Just found scringes and needles in my bathroom in a case on the floor. My daughter was over visiting her son. I have guardianship through the court. ( Not CPS.)

ordered supervised visits. No other stipulations

What should I do now?

Do  keep visitations the same. With the stipualtion she does not bring anything in my house. No Bags or purses.

Do I make her drug test?

Do I make her meet me at the park our get visition from social services. I dont believe she can afford that.

I also am concerned about my 31/2 year old grandson and how my decision will effect him. he loves her and asks everyday if she is coming over. 

Feeling heartbroken. if I deny visitation. I may not see my daughter at all. I have heard ex addicts say that family connection helped them quit.
