Letters From Family & Friends of Meth Addicts

Reading stories provided by family members who have seen meth addiction first hand is heart breaking and makes you realize just how devastating drug addiction is. Meth addiction doesn't just destroy the user it destroys everything in their life especially their loved ones and friends. Meth addiction is a disease that's mentally and emotionally debilitating and those who love and care about the meth user are in just as much pain.

Family addiction stories are heartbreaking but they also reassure others that they're not alone and someone out there understands the pain they're going through. Some families have had to use tough love in order to survive the effects meth addiction has on them because the emotional pain is so overwhelming. Our hearts go out to anyone suffering from addiction and that includes family, friends and loved ones because they're in need of healing too.

    A Wonderful Guy

    I'm married to a wonderful guy who started using meth about a year ago. I didn't know what was going on at first, but he started to hang out at my brothers a lot. He stayed out all night and thought it was ok. He wouldn't let me come with him to my brothers. He slept all day and stayed up for days on end....

    Super Star No More

    Dear Friends. I have been accessing this Website for the past two years. My beloved daughter has been addicted to crystal meth for four years now she is only 22. Like many family members of tweakers, it took me forever to figure out what was going on. She used to be a "superstar" in our family. Blessed with unusual good looks, my blonde beauty resembled both Pamela Anderson Lee and the character "Kelly Bundy" from the old TV show. She was happy, funny, and popular but also really ambitious. She graduated high school 6 months early because she took summer and night classes. She started college at age 17. Meanwhile, her high-school boyfriend was dear to all of us we adored him, and thought that the two of them would eventually marry. After graduation, he got a great job with a pest control company she was in college. What a bright future the two of them had!...

    The Perfect Man

    I had finally found the perfect man. We came together in a magical way and bonded our families together. He was 41 and I was 29 and I was sure we would spend the rest of our lives together. We had 2 children (mine from a previous marriage) and were expecting our first one together. Life was really great during the first couple of years, but very slowly things began to change. He became very critical, moody and listless. I began to wonder if he had psychological problems....

    Choosing Meth Over Love

    My name is Kay; I met a man named David 2 years ago, through a fix up from my brother, newly out of the prison system, wanting to start his live over, since this was his second offense. He was wonderful and I fell head over heels in love with him. After we moved in together and he got a job in Texas things were great....

    The Consequences of Meth Abuse

    I am 25 years old. I really don't understand the appeal of meth. I'm just glad I never tried it. I got pregnant with my oldest daughter when I was 16. I used to go to my boyfriend (now my husband's) house on the weekends. My father-in-law was and still is a meth dealer. So pretty much all his friends were tweakers. Everyone was happy for us that we were going to have a baby, but at least half of my father-in-laws tweaker friends had lost their parental rights to their children. My husband and I moved in together when our baby was one month old. At that time my father-in-law was about to lose his house, so he sold it. Even when he had his house, he didn't have any hot water or electricity so my husband's sisters and brothers would come over to take baths and just to spend time with us....
