Welcome to Ask an Addict

AskanAddict.com is intended to provide addiction support and advice in a non-judgmental way so that the addict or anyone else that's been affected by an addict, will know there are many who understand and eliminate the feeling of being alone.

Ask an Addict knows it may be hard to talk with family and friends, as many times they just don’t understand. Many have fractured those important relationships in life during active addiction. When it comes to seeking information, likeness, and establishing a strong recovery program, who better to ask than someone who has been there? 

At Ask an Addict we listen and learn, together. Whether you're an addict, a recovering addict or have been affected by an addict, we all have that common denominator of addiction.

If I had to use one word to describe our members, it would be the word compassion. (sympathetic consciousness of others' distress together with a desire to alleviate it)

A great online source for support and quality information relating to addiction and treatment, we recommend for our audiences! --- The US Rehab Network

Can addicts feel love again

My bf has been an addict for since his early 20s, now he is 42, during the past over decades, he tried to get clean by moving to another country. and he did, was clean for a few years, untill he picked up again. Not long after that he met me. it was kept away from me for years, and i enabled him financially without knowing, and we were on an off for years, untill he decided to tell me the truth, since then, i been helping him to make up mind to go rehab get help. He went back two times past two years. last time he came out was last September. I believe he not touched any heroin his DOC since then, but tried a few others, like yabba (his words), crack, and cocaine till he had a very bad pschosis attack made him finally realize, no drug is safe. so for past two month, he is in Thailand alone for his recovery as strong recovery society there. He still drinks sometimes, but no drugs. we hadn't had intimate for long time, and we did go docs for his psychosis, during the test, i know he lost drive for it and has no interest in opposite sex. 

He's been so numb for so long, can he feel love again? and how long into recovery will he be able to feel? I been by his side helping him, volunteered to be his safety net for so long, i am not even sure if he loves me and he not sure either as he not sure of any of his feeling. how pathetic is this.
