Do You Love an Addict?
Compulsive, addictive behavior seems to be on the rise. Whether it’s gambling, pornography, drugs, food, or texting, some people go to extremes. And then there are the people who love these people, who are actually addicts themselves. They’re addicted to the ups and down of their roller-coaster relationship. It’s a co-dependent relationship and a miserable life.

Can’t Stop Loving Them
Like the song, “Addicted to Love,” many of my callers cannot free themselves from their relationships with addicts. Call after call, I keep hearing, “I can’t leave,” “I can’t stop loving them,” and “I don’t know how to let go.” They try to separate the person from the addiction, loving them in spite of their behavior and hoping and praying they will be fixed one day.
The Source of Addiction
An addiction can come from a number of sources. Some people have a family history of addiction. For example, your lover may be an alcoholic because their parents or grandparents were. It’s hard to contend with a person who has an inherited addiction. That’s because their behavior seems normal to them. Growing up, everyone around them indulged and abused their drug of choice, and some relatives may continue to do so. So you’re not only fighting your lover’s addiction, you’re also fighting their family’s influence.
Some addicts were also addicts in past lives. This means there’s some unfinished business and it will continue to be unfinished until they break their karma. Again, if you are in love with someone who has been an addict lifetime after lifetime, it’s going to be rough for you. You are contending with lifetimes of abuse.
Other people developed their addictions because they spend time with addicts. We all know the person who took up smoking because all their friends or co-workers smoked. Perhaps they succumbed to peer pressure or felt left out because they were the only one in their circle who didn’t smoke. The same can be said for others who were hooked by friends, a pretty/handsome face or someone they admired. In order for them to break their addiction, they would have to walk away from these relationships. It would be pretty hard to maintain sobriety around these people.
Astrology and Addiction
Believe it or not, astrology can predict what struggles a person will have. An astrologer can look at the planets and their placement in the houses and tell you what to look out for. Many people have their children’s charts done for this very reason. If you want to avoid falling deeply in love with an addict, you may want to consider having a potential mate’s chart done before you are too emotionally invested.
Intervene Sooner Rather Than Later
If you are in love with someone who has an addiction problem, don’t wait to intervene. If you wait, they’ll get much worse and that may increase the chances that your relationship will never be repaired. You want to try to help them before they fall apart completely, and if you can’t, it could be easier for you to walk away sooner, rather than later.
I don’t want you to think that addicts can’t be helped and that you should just walk away from the relationship. But, I also don’t want you to feel stuck in a relationship with a sick, out-of-control partner. If you feel like you need someone to talk to, or if you want to know when things will get better for you, call me.
