I Have To Break Up With Him To Protect My Sobriety.

I have been clean and sober since Feb 2011.

I started dating someone who parties, drinks and does blow, at the end of June and I moved in with him the beginning of November. Of course, I just thought I'd be 'ok' since I go to parties a lot because I love electronic music.

That was the first mistake, but anyway...

He brings it home sometimes and at first I didn't mind seeing him do a line once in a while after a party but now I'm tired of having to play the tape over and over.
My defenses are growing weak and I am resenting him for it.

I was working at the desk in our bedroom the other day and I looked over and there was an empty baggie and rolled up piece of paper that absolutely terrified me. I no longer feel safe in my own home.

I have to break up with him but I fear the conversation that is going to happen and how he will react.  Mutual friends, blah blah blah...

I know I have to break up in the next few days because I am getting physically ill over this...I'm more stressed now that when my mother died.

He doesn't know yet, but he will soon. I need to talk to him but last night and I think tonight he will be drunk and I want him to be sober for this conversation but we'll see.

anyway, I am venting, just preparing myself to break free from this situation.

any experience/comments are appreciated.

If you are trying to stay sober, I don't think it is a good idea to be around it

Wow so crazy how insidious this disease is. Do what YOU need to do to take care of YOU. You are so important.
