Love each other. Spread positivity. Support one another.
The thing about loving an addict is that you think your love should be able to fix it and find yourself in disbelief when it can’t.
10 Former Addicts Share Their Powerful Stories Of Recovery And Freedom (And Their Words Will Break Your Heart)

If you are like me and love someone with an addiction, just let them know you are there for them.
addicts never feel quite right in their own bodies. They struggle with feeling like two people. They feel feelings very deeply. They care a lot about what others think of them. They’re codependent.
