Hi Onelove

Drug use can affect libido, yes.

For a person now sober from drugs to be with a man who is still using heroin (and all while on parole from a 10 year stint in prison!) you are treading a dangerous path. Please be careful!

WOW! And thank you very very much Susan , you are a very smart woman and I appreciate this very much, as you know I am new to this website and I love it already, I really dont have anyone to talk to and get answers from. So yes to your question this is the same guy ;( I know I know....I love him so so much and Im not to sure this man is someone that I should even be with, beleive me he is great in all aspects but this Idk I see myself making excuses for him and I know better than that you know, Well he was in prison for over 10 years and apparently did it in there thats where it came from but I cant help but wonder ifhe wasnt on parole then would it be more often?? Thats scacy something I never want in my life ever ever again you know since I have come so far. Anyhow I know that people could change and I dont know what to think anymore you know cause he is strong enough to only do it when he can. so that has to say something right? And about the question on his sex drive? does it bring it down? Or is it me? Im sure you seen my other post about him being weird and not having sex with me as often adn THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH I will never Go back to that old life!!

Hi Onelove!

Heroin use once a month isn't very common; make sure he's not taking it more often than you know. Yes, it' a problem to be using heroin and if he has to take UA's then is he on probation for drugs or something?

Onelove, is this the same man who wants to have a child with you even though you have four already and have no uterus? Onelove, don't have a child with a man on heroin, no matter how "little" he takes it. He obviously has a history of drugs, has not quit like you have (congratulations and stay strong!). Be sensible and think of your children and don't even think about having a child with him.

I have a question? My boyfriend uses the same drug and he tells me its not a problem for him since he only does it like once a month once he takes his UA's ;( But is it a problem? I was an addict myself and I know if I used cocaine ever again that I would go back into my old life style but I know that if I snorted again it would be a problem for me, also could his heroin use bring down his sex drive, another thing it seems like he is super nice on it then after a few days hes aweful mean whats that about?

Hi Kelly!

It's good to hear from you!

House arrest means things have been bad for you and I know I'm preaching to the choir here but another bad move could see you in jail. This is certainly one way to dry out but jail's a horrible way to do it and a horrible place to be.

I'm so glad you're in counseling and in class; you're not just sitting around, playing the blame game and doing nothing to help yourself. Being as proactive as you are shows you're self-aware and strong enough to know what your triggers are (and who they are). Good for you for going to school too!

Kelly, none of us are angels - just some of us trip and fall a lot more than others. Most of us have done things or said things we're not proud of but I'm very proud that you're taking the right steps. Please post here ANYTIME and we'll be here for moral support - all the way.

hello susan, well yeah im in counseling and addiction group class.I do know my tiggers and i try to stay clear from those people places and things. I think alot of me having cravings is because of boredom. I'm currently on house arrest and the only place i can go is to school which im trying to get my ged and to the groups. I live in owings mills maryland so its hard to find any n.a meetings. But i really trully thank you for the response.

Hi Kelly

Thanks so much for your post. I have read and heard that heroin is a very hard drug to beat, but it certainly can be done.

You are going to have to find patience to deal with life because this will far lessen your craving to have a drug take away your pain. Don't let heroin take over your life.

Can you identify the triggers that make you use? Doing this and finding outlets that can help with these triggers is very important. In other words, if you know that a fight with someone makes you want to take heroin a) avoid the person or situation entirely or b) have a game plan for what you do afterwards like calling a certain someone to talk to, walking outdoors, listening to music or taking a different form of exercise. You need a game plan for when these situations occur because life is full of ups and downs for all of us and you'll need these kinds of tools for life.

Are you in counseling or N.A? Or another kind of support group? This will really help you, Kelly.

Please let us know a bit more about your life and where you want your life to be. We're here for support!
