Need opinions on a cocaine abuser

I love someone dearly who in my eyes would be considered addicted to cocaine . He does it about 3times a week I'm not sure how to help someone like this ? I've been with him for 7 years and most of all are major fights are me asking him to please stop . I ask myself what's wrong with me why would he do this why do they do this? What can I' do just not mention or (!**@!) at him about having it again we have a beautiful daughter and just moved into a nice home . First day in new home he did it the first two nights . And since Sunday and it's now Tuesday we're I live he has been getting it every night. Days of at work I guess he thinks it's his celebration time . I'm not sure I love and care for this person so much they don't see they issue there family doesn't care . I have abandonment issues from being tossed around to foster cares and what not . I can't walk away for the life of me I can't give up on people but I'm being treated as if I'm wrong for saying something . Can he ever stop this habit he's been doing it since he was 17 he is now 24 . I feel so hopeless .

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Addiction of cocaine is very strong and it needs rehabilitation and complete detoxification and behavioural therapies for improvement.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
