Having hung around various alcoholics & addicts most of my life I would have to say crack addicts were the most dangerous.I had a friend who stole from his own mother & then helped her file the police report for the "burglary". Long story short, he wants to leave and go get help in West Virginia, where he was born and raised, and we live in Ohio. I let him use my car, give him money occasionally, etc.Long story short, he wants to leave and go get help in West Virginia, where he was born and raised, and we live in Ohio.Sometimes i feel that would be best in the long run, but we have a daughter together. keep addicts as far away from your precious children as possible. no one is worth having the chance to hurt your kids, and kids who grow around addicts DO get hurt. classic example..years ago, my daughter was up from LA and staying with us - her father (my first ex) had just passed away and we (she and I)were helping her grandfather make final arrangements for his disposition (cremation) and his celebration of life ceremony, hank and I are locked in the bedroom one night, about 11pm, smoking crack and set off the smoke alarm in our room!!!there is nothing a crack addict loves more than......crack, and more crack. my exabf who was/is addicted to crack was/is smart, sexy, funny, kind and loved his children too..he was/is addicted to crack jekyll and hyde I swear he has learned how to make himself more sexy, funny, smart and kind in order to desperately try to make up for the "deficit" of his addiction.

it's not the addict doing it...they're just doing what addicts do once we become informed (I needed to be informed) then it is our responsibility to get our love out of the trash heap and our lives out of hell @ lesliej, thank you for your statment. He has nothing without me, and his family is a mess so I almost feel bad for him. I will tell a few things that have helped me along the way..those here at SR are somewhat used to my long posts so I will just address this to Yogagurl and aef0920 since we have purchased tickets to the same particular ride.
