I ended up finding all these night jobs to avoid going home. Believing certain jobs were "below" him, I'd have to bartend in these sleazy bars that I hated so much just to make enough money for us.Meanwhile, he was out partying and using the excuse that he was 'networking' to go to clubs and take copious amounts of drugs.
As well as being defensive, he'd bring things that I apparently did into it.
Liam would say, "Well you love to go out and I provide that." I’d end up feeling guilty and he'd storm out.
I didn’t always want to party, but he'd pressure me to.
Then we'd get into horrific arguments which our roommates overheard through our thin apartment walls.
It was found that both men and women's happiness in a relationship declined as their frequency of drug use increased - while people whose partners occasionally used drugs cited their happiness as between 7-8 on the scale, for women who were with someone who constantly used drugs it fell to a 3.
More than half (56%) of respondents said they wouldn't remain in a relationship with someone who was suffering from substance abuse, but leaving a partner over their drug use is rarely simple."I was 18 going on 19 when I met Liam* at the warehouse party where he was DJing.
Looking back, he was very much a manipulative person.
In the bedroom, he became very physically aggressive and he'd make me do things I just wasn't comfortable with.
I don’t know if he was using any drugs other than ecstasy and weed, but I feel you can’t go through that many thousands of dollars on just ecstasy and weed.
