Dating an Addict

"Help! I'm in Love With a Manipulative Addict!"

OK, I have just joined because I need advice, and I am too embarrassed to tell my friends about my problem.

I met a guy about six months ago. He told me he had drug problems in the past but that was over now. He was perfect. We moved very quickly and two months in he was living with me. After a few months of pure bliss, I received a credit card bill. Then another. He had been taking my cards and run up an $8,000 bill between them all. I still don't know how I'll pay them off. He told me he bought stuff for us and he had no idea he spent that much. After two days I kicked him out. He swore he would pay me back and he has paid about $500 in the past couple of weeks.

We began talking again and I agreed to let him come over this past weekend to stay. We had a blast until he went outside to talk on the phone. When he returned he was slurring and acting weird. After an hour or so of trying to communicate with him about what he took, he became unresponsive and overdosed. After a night in the ER, he was fine and sober again. I made him leave and he told me all the things I needed to hear to believe it would never happen again. I know this is wrong and I need to cut ties. I know I should've called the police when he stole the money. I just can't help but feel he is the one and for some reason we should be together. I love him. I don't know how to get away.
