how do I help him?

love and addiction





My boyfriend is one of the most amazing people I know. He encourages me to be a better person. He helped me predominantly to quit cigarettes, a very difficult addiction to quit. He genuinely cares about my well-being and is always the one to show his love in little and discreet ways. However, he's been addicted to percs for a few years now. The last time he tried to quit I was just his friend which didn't make me feel as involved or obligated to help like I do now, being his girlfriend. He doesn't do percocets for recreation, he uses them as a form of self-medication, to escape and to forget about the stresses with his family, especially his inner conflict involing his sister who is a serious drug addict. Its so hard to believe that a simple drug could contol someones life so much, especially my boyfriend who plays it off with his toughness. I've done percocets before but strictly for clinical use so I can't really sympathize for him. I just want to emotionally support and protect him but I never know what to say, in fear that I might come off as harsh or not understanding. Its heartbreaking to see him nodding out and so sad when he let's me know what he did. I'm always crying and I hate myself for it because I want to be the one to help him, not crumble so easily. How do I help him in the best way? Please give me some advice on what I can do or say that will really impact him for the better
