Hi there. My name is Lexi and my boyfriend is a recovering addict. When we started dating he was almost two years sober and I naively thought I’d never see the addict side of him. Three months into our dating, he relapsed. There were a lot of lies, deceit, empty promises and days where I felt lost and mistreated. Now, he is back in recovery and over 2 months sober. I feel like I finally have him back. Things are good between us. Our lives are falling into place and everything is slowly seeming to climb uphill again. But I still have days where I can’t help but think of all the terrible things he did when in his addiction. How can I let the past go and be okay with the things I went through?
Thank you in advance.
