Love & Drugs: How Addiction Ruins Relationships

In the intricate tapestry of human connections, relationships form the vibrant threads that weave our lives together.

However, like a storm cloud on a sunny day, being addicted to drugs has the power to cast a shadow over these bonds. Addiction doesn’t just hurt one part of a relationship – it hurts in many ways. It can make things go wrong physically, make feelings and understanding disappear, and even make money troubles.

Addiction Ruins Partnerships & Healthy Marriages In Several Ways

Physically: Addiction makes people forget about taking care of their bodies and those around them. They might skip important doctor visits and not do things to stay healthy. This can worry their partners and make them feel depressed and hopeless. Sometimes, addiction can even lead to hurting the people around them and create an unhealthy habit of domestic violence.

Emotionally: Addiction also messes up how people feel and talk to each other. Trust among significant others and family members, which is like a strong base in a relationship, can break an addiction.

Talking things out when your partner or spouse is addicted becomes impossible. Feeling close and sharing emotions can also get lost because of addiction, or it can feel too close which leads to a codependent relationship. Everyone surrounding someone who is addicted, but especially partners and loved ones, faces a heavy mental health toll.

Financially: Addiction doesn’t just take a toll on health and feelings – it also takes a toll on money. Imagine if the money meant for important things like a home or education gets used for addictive things. This can make it tough to pay for everyday needs, and families can end up owing money. Money problems add to the worries and stress, making the relationship even more troubled.
