Dear Prison Widow UK
My partner is in prison and is addicted to Spice. I have noticed a dramatic change in his overall attitude and he is changing his ways - for the worse - not better.
I'm at home with the kids; I have struggled financially to make sure the children have had a happy Christmas and my partner is insisting and insisting and begging for money most every day.
He has also been ringing some of mine and his relatives; some elderly; and asking them to send him money.
When my partner went to prison; he had a drink problem not a drug problem. But since he has been in prison; he now has a drug problem which is becoming unbearable.
How as a partner; am I supposed to support him and maintain ties with a drug addict who is time and time over begging money from me? How does this work? How does staying in contact to hold the family work when he is addicted to a substance that his changing him in to someone I do not know anymore? This is making me ill.
