    Hello. I am new to this forum.

    Over the last few months, I have been noticing strange numbers on my husband’s phone/phone bill. I thought he was cheating on me at first. Today I found a number that I know to be a girl’s number. This girl and her husband sell drugs. I noticed over the last few bills that the numbers have shown up and last only a minute. I had an inkling that it was drugs, so I asked him who the number was (even though I knew) he at first said he didn’t know, then I told him not to lie to me. He told me he was a drug addict, and he was addicted to painkillers. I feel like someone has ripped me apart inside. I don’t know what to believe. I’m in disbelief actually. I’ve noticed odd behavior for a while now. His eyes are always blood shot, his appetite is non-existant, and he has lost a lot of weight. I thought he was a diabetic at first. Crazy. He is 26, I am 24, and we have a son together. He told me that coming home and seeing us is the only thing that keeps him clean, but when he goes to work (he works in construction, so he can get his hands on whatever and not worry about being drug tested) he can’t fight the addiction, and sometimes he can’t even when he’s at home, I have noticed that he leaves randomly… he looks for reasons to go out, which is why I thought he was cheating, but the time he is gone isn’t enough to be cheating, at least I don’t think… cheating aside, he might have a bigger problem and that’s addiction.. I love him and I want to help him.. he says he has tried to clean up and even went to a clinic, but he is always here is the thing.. i’m still confused.. i don’t know what to believe.. i feel so helpless and lost.. please help me.
