ONLY
....if they love themselves more than the drug.
Good relationships happen only if you love yourself enough
to have the capacity to receive, and believe.

I thought you were a speed freak too belle.

Re: Can a meth addict really have a relationship?
imho...i dont believe most meth addicts really like who they are, dont know who they are while using, um, a lot of users are covering up some deep rooted emotional trauma...but...speed...or...love...the only thing that happens is you love speed...nothing more...no balance.

I couldn't even stand myself and i couldn't care 4 myself. i wasn't able to love anyone else. all i wanted was to be high and to get high. no feelings at all

Re: Can a meth addict really have a relationship?
well..

ms.chick

If self preservation was'nt an issue, I'd be selling my ass for speed right now, instead of talking to you.
....and so would you.
so SOMETHING made us decide we were'nt gonna go live at the grey hound bus terminal.

.....dare I say it?

could it have been LOVE?

...in vaugue whispers, that woke us from our lack of concern, drug addict appreciation of ones own virtues,and spirit, in spite of the material "thing" that enslaved us?

......it's not as good as us!I don't love it more than ME!

without me, meth has no meaning....I animate it.
....it's just a piece of hazardous waste without someone to give it hype.

love is always everlasting.

I always choose love when givin those two choices....

Yes,

There are two things stronger than any drug addiction.

A genuine relationship with God.

True unselfish love.

freedom
Re: Can a meth addict really have a relationship?
When I was using, I said that I loved my family and myself. But my actions didn't.

Re: Can a meth addict really have a relationship?
Umm,

I find that yeah. Addict can have relationships.. they do it all the time.

I think that everyone would be generally better off though if they didnt. They tend to make a relationship dysfunctional above and beyond anything I've seen elsewhere.

Um. That was kinda a joke.. though it was true.

Really.. it depends on the addict I would say. Some of us fall harder for the dope than others.

Re: Can a meth addict really have a relationship?

25 years
but no

Re: Can a meth addict really have a relationship?
It is pretty unlikely. Meth always comes first to an addict.
JUSTCATS Re: Can a meth addict really have a relationship?
Addicts have "relationships" all of the time, but are they "happy ones?" So, far I have never known of an addict to have a "happy relationship," where they put their mate first over meth. That is just my opinion...

Re: Can a meth addict really have a relationship?

Yes an addict can love. BUT! often addicts think they are in love when they realy aren't. If an addict gets into a relationship while they are still using sometimes it's not true love. Meth stimulates the pleasure areas of our brain, and therefor we sometimes think we are in love but we aren't.

Dopamine is naturaly released when a sober person is stimulated by love, addicts are flooded with dopamine when we use, so false love often ensues.

What im trying to say, is... Addicts LOVE everything when we're high, but our only true love is the drug.

Once an addict gets clean on the other hand, our love with another person, will either fall appart as we realize they don't stimulate us like we thought they did.

Or our love will strengthen tremendously as we are naturaly stimulated by them and we dont have the stimulation of dope overshadowing the true love.

I felt my first natural rush of dopamine in the last few weeks, and it was INTENSE, and AMAZING. It was like the first time I got high, I haven't felt that in 9 years. And the best part is. It was all natural.

Re: Can a meth addict really have a relationship?
well sUZie Q...while on drugs i only loved drugs...there was no balance for me...it was to conflicting.

what i believed pulled me up, was the love for my children...when i sober, i had clarity...instead of reaching for my next numbness of the pain of guilt...i reached inside and put them as my priority instead of dope...

no relationship i had EVER...while on drugs...was anything more then a relationship built on lies, getting high, getting dope, crashing...and back to the first...an evil circle

but of the two...your right...love i hold now...

the greyhound bus terminal...ok...i ll meet you in florida...Houston is scary
