Addiction and Substance Abuse
my husband has done meth for 23 yrs he has gott5en very moody and is so forgetful he always thinks im up to no good i love him so much and i want to help him how can i make him see what he is doing without him knowing it
I am assuming that you are talking about methamphetamine, which is a stimulant. Long term use of stimulants can cause mood problems and even paranoid delusions. He may actually need a psychiatric evaluation and medication to treat some of these symptoms. The best way to support him is to share your concerns with him and encourage him to get help for himself. At the same time I would strongly encourage you to attend Al-Anon meetings to get support for yourself at this difficult time.
