He's not fucked up for using drugs in the first place. He's a dick for dumping her after she cleaned him up, got him sober, AND helped him get a job where she works. The fact that he justifies his actions by saying that he wants to settle down with someone whose worthy of HIM makes what he did even worse.

It's so cute that you guys don't know that people who go through rehab, and are serious about it, usually try to cut ties with everything from their former life. Since she obviously was there before, he probably needs to cut ties so he doesn't go back down a bad path. Also, OP is a woman and therefore probably reading far too much into it. There are no quotes around "someone worthy of him," so I'm going to take a (not-so-big) leap and say that is what she surmised, herself.

Yeah, my ex is a recovering alcoholic/drug addict. Has 16? years clean and sober now. When he decided it was enough, he cut ties with everyone that wasn't family. Most of his friends are recovering addicts, and Ive been with a couple friends to either NA meetings or AA meetings as a form of support. For the most part, they have to cut out anyone who could have been an enabler in the past. If she was his gf before he got cleaned up, she could very well have been one. It just says she helped him through drug rehab. That doesn't mean she was the one who made him go.

My comment has nothing to do with cutting ties with people, and it doesn't look like anyone elses does either, so I have no clue what you are going on about...

I didn't know that. They try to "cut ties" with things that connect them to a sort of former life of drug use? Huh. That's interesting... o.o I still feel bad for OP. You don't just leave someone who dedicated time and energy in helping you for someone else once you're back on your feet and perhaps imply he found her attractive because of the "chemicals" clouding his brain. >.

Another dumb little kid that see's the world in black and white. Not everyone who is in rehab is a lowlife junkie. My uncle was hit by a drunk driver, perscribed Oxycontin, and became hooked on it (it's VERY easy to get hooked on opiates). His addiction took over his life and it took him 2 years to get clean. But since you probably know nothing about the real world, all you know is what Officer Friendly came and told you in DARE class.

uhhh... no, not really. by saying that kids think in "right" and "wrong" with nothing in between, and adults don't, ur actually being more black-and-white than the kids that ur describing.
