Addicts spend a lot of time working on themselves and their relationships on the path to sobriety, so they can apply all those lessons to your relationship.In the wake of a breakup, we've talked about giving back all the old stuff, and cutting off contact. As the Daily Mail article says, "emotionally mature partners will be able to accept you have a past love-life." True that.
In fact, I think having a few pictures could be a bad sign itself.
Although it won't be the same for everyone, maybe some of you can relate.
If you're romantically involved with a current or former drug addict, just know it's not all bad.
What is worse is you'll also have to consider how you'll deal with relapse if it happens. Even the best relationships are sometimes messy and chaotic, but drugs are an immediate escape and a quick way to temporary nirvana. Some addicts realize that they've given up the truly important things in their life, and work as hard as they can not to mess them up again.
Ever hear the saying, "Replace one habit with another"? When trying to come or stay off drugs, they often switch vices.
