Open Question: I feel so bad about walking away, should I?

This guy is on cocaine and I knew when I met him cos he opened up about his problems a lot. I knew I couldn’t get romantically involved with him but I started liking him. We texted everyday, he started calling and we even made plans to meet. He asked me out a few times and I told him he had to stop the drugs etc and he still asked the last time we met. We talked for 4 hours that day and at the end he asked me out again and he could see how confused I was. Yesterday when we were texting he asked if he could call and I thought I should set this straight. I am scared of gettong close to people either way and that seemed as the bigger issue so I told him that we should just be friends and he was like what’s wrong with him and I explained to him that I’m really scared that’s why I didn’t have a relationship before…and he agreed we just going to be good friends and if he gets a girl he’ll talk to me about it. I regret walking away like that but i have issues getting close to people and he has addictions, that’s disaster right. I don’t know if i’ll find a man now, especially one who would break through the fear. And it’s going to hurt when he finds another girl, but I did what I had to right?

I told him he can still call but I’m just setting it so he knows where we stand

I feel guilty about telling him that it’s hard for me to get close to people generally :(
Additional Details
He was depressed yesterday and told me he is glad I said no because he would have really hurt me, when he met me he thought he changed but he hasn’t and can’t. He has addictive personality and is a hectic player or was
was it fine for me to be honest i’m scared of relationships, is there hope for me

Resolved Question: Am I in deep denial over my husband’s drug addiction?

My 50 year old husband is a drug addict. He has battled addiction throughout our marriage of 12 years. It started out with pain pills and progressed to crack/cocaine. He was clean for 3 years and relapsed last year. Relapse started with cocaine but now I think it is more pain pills. I am the only one working and we don’t have the money for cocaine. He has pawned and traded just about everything we have. Has borrowed money from a former boss and when he asks him to work it is to “work off” what he owes. He swears that he has done nothing since 1.5.2010 but there are days when I come home from work and I suspect he has done something. Of course, he denies it when confronted. He is unemployed and what I make is barely keeping our head above water. Our home is being foreclosed on–goes up for sale 3.18.2010. When confronted about getting a job he makes a joke about it and says “when I know that I can pass a drug test”. Am I in some serious denial or am I not giving him a chance to prove himself. He made a comment about if roles were reversed, he would stand beside of me. I have stood beside of him for many years through this addiction. I can’t stand anymore. I have thought of divorce but I know that would probably send him over the edge. What do you think?

Open Question: What do U think Mex blames America for decrease in drug sale money is causing drug prices to drop?

Washington, DC, United States (AHN) – A Mexican law enforcement agency is blaming recent violence along the border in large part to a U.S. crackdown on drug traffickers, prompting skepticism from American government agencies.

Mexico’s Secretariat of Public Security reported that in the past six months the value of cocaine in Mexico has escalated from $431 million to $811 million because fewer of the illegal shipments are making their way into the United States since Barack Obama assumed the presidency.

Obama administration anti-drug efforts have included sending an additional 400 Homeland Security Department agents to the border, which included specialists from the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The DEA already operated with about 1,000 specialists in combating cross-border drug trafficking, the Mexican agency reported.

As a result, more of the drugs are piling up in Mexico, making them more available and increasing the number of addicts. The number of Mexican cocaine addicts rose from around 260,000 in 2002 to more than 1.7 million now, according to Secretariat of Public Security figures.

Growing drug addiction is contributing to violence between rival drug gangs and to clashes with police, the Mexican law enforcement agency is reporting.

U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency officials have a slightly different explanation for the violence.

“I’m not going to comment on specifics of what they attribute the violence to,” said David Ausiello, DEA spokesman.

DEA officials say Mexican President Felipe Calderon’s anti-drug policies are a more likely explanation for the violence.

“The cooperation we have seen with Mexico since President Calderon has come into office has been unprecedented,” Ausiello said. “His administration decided to take on the drug cartels and as a result you’re seeing a significant amount of drug arrests. That’s what happens when law enforcement comes in and cracks down. You’re going to see an increase in violence.”

Calderon became Mexico’s president on Dec. 1, 2006.

Recent Mexican police actions have included killing drug lord Arturo Beltran-Leyva on Dec. 17, 2009, and arresting suspected drug lord Eduardo Teodoro Garcia Simental on Jan. 13.

With more drugs in Mexico, the market has become bigger and more profitable for drug gangs, the Mexican Secretariat of Public Security reported. Officials from the agency recommend that the Mexican government anti-drug campaign include addiction treatment rather than relying only on law enforcement.

A contributing issue in the rise of drug availability and addicts in Mexico was the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, which prompted the U.S. government to more closely monitor its southern border, according to the Secretariat of Public Security.
