Girlfriend texted that she took him back, conditionally. I don't know if that is good or bad but she must go through her own learning growth too. The hard part for her is she loves the clean Alex, hates the using Alex. When Alex is not using he is a charming man. When he is not using he is what I wish I could be. A relative we are staying with at the lake remarked, "When Alex came into a room he raised the energy of that room by just coming in, what a shame." That is the person we are struggling with giving up, that is what makes it so hard. And I am sure many of you have the same experience.
Yesterday was Mom's birthday. Alex texted her Happy Birthday. She did not respond. She made that decision herself and I know it is killing her.
