Sounds like you had a good talk. I hope it works out. Just remember, addicts lie. They lie to their friends, their family, to everyone around them. Most importantly, they lie to themselves. An addict is like someone with dual personalities. The "real" person you knew can recognize what they've done and have every intention of turning things around, which is why they come off as being sincere. But the addict in the back of their heads takes over when the need for drugs/alcohol get strong and every promise they made is gone like a fart in a windstorm.he swore to me he is not on drugs, he lied to his mom about where he was because she hate his gf and wont let her at her house so he has to get a hotel, he said she just got out of rehab and is clean too, he said he gets drug tested all the time and passes but no one believes him , said he has not done any drugs since he OD’d and said that was 8 mths ago
As TP said above, as long as he stays connected to anyone who is or was addicted, the chances of successful recovery go down considerably. Whatever happens, at least you did what you can to show your support.
