Question by Jessica: cocaine addiction?
I am starting to put two and two together. My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 years. He has used cocaine recreationally for several years before we met but it was only once every three or four months. We moved a year ago and about 6 months ago he was able to get cocaine much easier and has now started using it every weekend. Ever since that time his attitude has changed and his anger has gotten out of hand as you can probably tell by my previous posts. The therapist has told me that she believes that he has Intermittent Explosive Disorder, after reading more about this disorder it has mentioned that cocaine can cause these angry outbursts. I moved out of our house a week ago and have been staying with my sister since due to his anger. I love him and don’t want to give up on him if he has a problem and I know I can’t help him but I feel like I should do more to support him, what do I do?

First – pat yourself on the back for leaving an abusive situation … so many of us never leave.

Second – you have truly done all you can. Its up to him now. He needs to admit he has a problem and start getting help. If he makes an honest effort at help, you can be part of his support system if you feel able by being a friend and talking with him when he needs it (NOT BY GOING BACK!). However, the key here is he has to help himself.

I’m sorry for what you’re going through – its never easy to watch someone you love going through this. I hope he gets the help he needs. Good luck!

If he won’t go into rehab and get off the cocaine u need to get out of the relationship and stay away from him. He could seriously hurt you or kill u. I have been in your position. The man broke my finger and messed up my nose. I was getting beaten every day. He broke the window of my car and slashed my tire. He sprained my ankle by twisting the hell out of it trying to break it. Cocaine addicts are dangerous. He played me saying he was getting help. In fact, he never was getting help and still is doing drugs. He still tries to stalk me. U need to think about your safety. Sometimes love is not enough. Not everyone can kick this addiction. I will be praying for u.
