‘When I was a child I always dreamed of going out with a nice boy who snorted things transported from other countries potentially inside other people to get high,’ said nobody, ever.A night out for someone who does coke is always over £100 before you’ve even factored in the drinks.My boyfriend – who we’ll call Tim for the purpose of not having to say ‘my boyfriend’ – isn’t an addict, but he gets ‘fucked up’ about once a fortnight on about a gram of coke.
Back dating a married man and snorting
This means that he’s not consistently poor, but he’s quite often completely broke because he happens to be a very generous man (and doesn’t want to snort it alone), which means he can easly drop £200.
And then a cab, because nobody wants to take public transport/drive while high. And then a cab the next day from wherever he’s ended up crashing.
I’ve sort of given up on him taking me away for the weekend, because it’s not really financially viable.
Which obviously makes me feel really great about things.
It’s 2am and my boyfriend and I have been out drinking and having all the fun – but then I sense the tone is shifting, the bathroom trips becoming more frequent, the laughing pretty much disappearing and – oh great, everyone’s doing coke now.
This means that, when we get home, he’ll try to have sex with me while swallowing consistently with a strangely intense look in his eye that makes him look like a different person, and when that doesn’t work (which it doesn’t), we’ll go to sleep knowing that the next two days are going to be a total write-off.
My boyfriend is self-employed, so weekends mean nothing to him, and he does coke about twice a month.
Nah, it doesn’t feel like a lot when you say it like that and no, he doesn’t do it so much that it’s a problem in itself – but you’d be surprised how much a slight penchant for cocaine can affect your nights out, your weekends, and your general relationship.
You can’t bring up someone’s drug use, or lambast them for it, when they’re sort of aware they’re doing it a bit too much.
