ebony posted a topic in Loss of a Love RelationshipI had been with this man for almost 2 years. 3 months ago his close friend, who had been in his life for much longer than I was, died from overdosing on heroin laced with fentanyl. My now ex, who had a cocaine problem but had been sober for 4 months, relapsed and started using again. He doesn't want to end up like his friend and die from contaminated drugs though, so he broke up with me and moved to Asia to start a new life away from drugs. He didn't want me to come with him, and currently has me blocked on social media. I did not want to deal with him either, as leading up to him leaving he had been asking me for money to fund his addiction. But I would have expected him to stay sober and continued being in a relationship with me had he not experienced this tragic loss. He was very loving in the year and a half leading up to it and we spent almost every day together until then. It sure was not a walk in the park when he was using, but when he was sober he was a great person to be with. I am now grieving after 2 people, my ex-boyfriend and his friend, who also had a big presence in my life by visiting the apartment I shared with my ex every week and going out to meals together.
