I need HELP, I'm lost. My fiance has been using roxicodone. He smokes it on foil. He has been doing it now, for about a year. I found out about 3 mths ago. He stayed home for 2 days going through withdrwls and is still doing it. He is acting like its not to serious but I know it is. What can I do to help him??
You can't help him. He needs to decide live life to the fullest and to focus on his future and what he wants out of life. If he can get excited about something worthwhile he should snap out of it. But to answer your question, what can you do. The answer is to leave him, but don't enable him and lead him to believe that you are willing to marry someone with no sight on your future. How can you take him seriously about being a husband and a father?
Hi flgirl, well first off he will be going through withdrawals for about 5 to 7 days. He will be pretty sick and it will be hard for you to watch him go through it. Check and see if he is taking anything else, most people who are doing what he is doing are also taking xanax or valium to help with the withdrawals. This can be a real problem because these medications are very addictive themselves and the withdrawal is worse and lasts longer,7 to 10 days or longer. Don't leave him just yet but definately set some boundries. I have been through this myself and its not easy. If you can get him to a medical D- tox, if he is taking xanax he can have a seizure from the withdrawal. Getting clean is just the tip of the iceberg. I'm actually 58 days clean today. I can give you all kinds of info on what you can do and where to go if you would like. Let me know and I would be glad to help. Just know that he can get better if he wants to. Keep in touch and good luck.
