Using Heroin or Not? I Don't Know

I don't really know what's going on. I know that her boyfriend is addicted to pain killers [opiods]. How do I know this...? Because he told me. WTF? The one person I thought was straight...now she's trying to help him. OMG! I must be an idiot. Why didn't I pick up on this? Now, I'm worried that they both might be using. Maybe I'm overreacting...he told me because he wanted to come clean...My daughter was really mad at him saying things like "I can't be around someone who is addicted to opiods...if you don't stop I'll break up with you." etc. etc. etc...He's been pretty sick...looks very sick to me...very thin...she says he's not eating pills...I'm confused. I think I'll have them both take a drug test...if they fight me on this I'll have my answer.

Jesus!! Help them both!!

I hope this doesn't mean she will relapse. It might though :(

Remember, a relapse is just a relapse, it doesn't HAVE to mean they fall off permanently.

I will pray for both of them.

Everytime I thought my boyfriend was using I would threaten him with a drug test. He would tell me to go ahead and test him, he will come up clean. Until I would come home from the drug store and hand it to him, and then all of a sudden he doesn't have to take it to prove it to me, he would tell me I have to trust him. But the one thing I learned is that you can't trust a heroin addict. They lie better then anyone else. I don't know what to tell you, there isn't an answer. You just have to pray and tell them you love them. The only answer I found was to leave, and I know that it's your daughter and it's harder done then said but sometimes it takes losing everything to get them to stop.

and then sometimes, even losing everything doesn't help

I just read the last post on this page and it said that you thought your daughter didn't use when they broke up(heroin)because her ex-at the time would kill her....Well why is it ok for him to catch a pill habit?? I'm assuming oc's...I just started reading your blog...I wish that my mother would have done something like this for me..but if anything I'm the one usually taking care of her...She's been addicted to everything EXCEPT heroin..She loved to rub that in my face, and I do mean everything...Hopefully your daughter realizes what she has, my mother is to selfish to see past her own nose, so she could never help me nor did she try.....
