Is there literature that can help me overcome the heartache I feel over this happening in my world?
Yes, there is help for someone in your position. I recommend attending the sister group called Nar anon to the main group, Narcotics Anonymous. The home page for this organization can be found at:
You can locate local meetings using this site. They are an organization to support people like yourself dealing with the illness of addiction. I highly recommend surrounding yourself with a network of people that can help you cope with the issues at hand.
I feel for you. I too was married to a cocaine addict who choose his addiction over our marriage. I can share that it took time, but through the support of folks in the rooms of Nar anon, I am over the heart ache. This is a family illness that effects not only the addict but those around them. Treating the illness of all involved is critical. There is little you can do to help the addict especially if they do not want help. Taking care of yourself is what is important now.
If you need someone to talk to, I am here. Please stay in touch,
