When he gets out, he still has home, food and everything gay older streaming videos needs and fighting his desire to use drugs will not be necessary because addiction is much stronger than you know.

He will never hit his rock bottom or come to gay hsipanic video galleries conclusion that is life is unmanageable on his own. Most addicts need to fall without rescue before they go for help. Sometimes cutting them off financially is the only way. I would seek counseling for you both so you can make informed decisions that may help him instead of making decisions based on being scared, and other emotions.
