Meth Users' Excuses


babee Meth Users' Excuses
At times the addict in my life ducks out of sight as has been discussed by many here, but at times I have felt that he almost seeks me out to "push my face into it" so to speak. Almost like he's enjoying waving his user flag and saying "nah nah you can't do anything about this!"

It's at these times that he rants about how he hates his life, never wanted to have children and that he hates his wife because she doesn't do this or that. Then the next day he will turn around and will be calling his wife baby and be very affectionate with her and their children.

This is very confusing to me. Can anyone explain what exactly is going on? Is he "hating" and ranting when he's coming off the stuff or can't get anymore and loving when he's really high?

Re: Meth Users' Excuses
Being around an active addict is very confusing. But, I think that you have got it about right. He is pissed off when he doesn't have any or is coming down or he is happy when he has it.

In my experience with my addict he is very hateful towards us when using and nicer towards us when he isn't using.

The only times he is nice while using is when he thinks he can manipulate me and get something but that usually doesn't work and then back to the hating.

For me, my son tries to avoid me when he is high. But, if I do see him when he is high, he is nice. I mean he will talk to me, really talk to me. Talk about stuff he won't talk about any other time. Serious conversations, stuff that's in his head, you know, like his hopes, dreams, fears, etc..

The mean him comes along when he is coming down. I learned that here btw. I thought for the longest time that he was mean when he was high. Not the case. This is when my son raves about hating like, how everything is someone else's fault.

When he is not using or not coming down, just being himself, he actually a pretty quiet person.

In addition to the above great opinions, he seems to be the "classic" type mental abuser.

Happy, almost carefree when high. Mean, hateful, cruel when coming down.
