Hello jaxxion:

In what is "addiction" in reference to???drugs?
I can tell you first hand when you come down to earth from any habitual influences-yes there's still life in the world of a loving healthy relationship. As what ever addiction this pertains to, I'll use drugs as an example here. Drugs cause delusions and temporary euphoria.

Not being able to grasp the real identity with caring. Being sober or drug-free enables one to accept reality and see things more clearly..It is best to wait untill full therapy of healing is complete.
i hope this helped as I found it unclear as to what you were asking.
If you were speaking of other members or yourself-I guess that isn't important.

Speaking from experience: be clean at least one year, complete your program, get all your other responsibilities in order, and whatever you do "DONT BE SELFISH". People in recovery need to be honest, or you will relapse. And take it easy nothing too serious (sex is ok, if its not selfish). DONT TAKE A HOSTAGE!

jaxx,my friend Kenith was really heavy into drugs,ruled his life for the most
part and I was told to stay clear from him!

But I knew his mother,and his familly,and I took on the shore of saving him from his
habbits!

It was hard and there was a lot of hits and misses,but to keep the story short,he
recovered,he's no longer a user!

A few years later,he met this wonderfull woman,and they fell in love with each other,
he told her about his past and the drugs litterly controled his life,he kept no secrets
from her!
They stayed together and a year later they got married,now it's been 3 yrs and they're
still going strong and still very much in love with each other!

So Jaxx,yeah,you can count on finding love again,thaught my little true story could help
you believe again!!

Knight Rider!

I, for one, applaud this man for stepping forward. No one else here would (OMG, women will see this and never want to date me!). Yes, there is. I was an alcoholic and druggie back then and I know God can change all. Get help, this won't be easy, you need support people. I am sure there is even someone here to help, locally. But please do not focus on a relationship, focus on you. And things will get better. Also, one thing if I might, you really shouldn't hook up with users or people in recovery themselves. It will be better to be by yourself.

God Bless and good luck dude.

Hi! I am not sure what your addiction is.. possibly drug and alcohol addiction. I am in college studying this right now.. I want to be a drug counselor. I've learned from taking classes that the first thing you need to do is get better and recover. Often people relapse (addiction). Many people have relationships and are married that have addictions. So many people have some sort of addiction although there are different degrees. You have to be happy with yourself, healthy, and stable mentally, emotionally and physically to get involved in a relationship otherwise it will usually fail. Take your time and get better!
