my boyfriend takes 60 mg of methadone per day, he then takes zanax (not sure how many) he sleeps all the time and when he is awake he eats nothing but sweet things and milk, when he sleeps his breathing is scary so i dont get much sleep because i am afraid that i will wake up one morning and he will not. i dont take any kind of pills . i am so worried about him. he loves the drugs more than his family, how can i make him see is his dying and how can i make him get help.
hello alice. I am new to this also. My fiance is doing the same thing. He is on methadone and was being prescribed xanax as well. he would do nothing but sleep all day and wake up and eat sweets also. You wont be able to make him get help. He has to want to get help on his own. My fiance traded one addiction for another. He doesnt take xanax anymore because he withdrew from that and methadone while we were away a while ago. he then had to tell his therapist who was prescribing him the xanax about it and the therapist wont prescribe it any more to him. but back to my other point i have come to the realization this week thanks to wonderful support and help from people here that you cant help them they need to realize and help themselves. they have to be the ones who want to live life you cant live life for them. its a very hard realization to come to. my only hope is that your relationship isnt as bad as mine was. he has been through everything and still hasnt hit rock bottom and i realize that its time to live my life and not live his. hope this helps. you can always talk to me i am going through the exact same stuff as you are now. its very hard...
