Our expert says:
It certainly sounds like you don't have much to smile about with this character hanging around you. But it doesn't have to stay that way. It's time for tough love.
This guy is already using, he has obviously relapsed. If he's asking for dagga it means that he's been smoking it, probably behind your back.
In addition, he's not attending any meetings, has no sponsor and generally behaves like a manipulative twit.
This chronic sense of entitlement that he has is also textbook addict behaviour. Don't buy him cigarettes or anything for that matter, it's enough now.
He'll probably turn on you (great!) and claim that the world's vile and everybody's against him. He's right, with that puerile King Baby attitude of his, the world will be against him.
Cut your losses with this guy and move on. You can't save him, he knows what to do. Suggest to him that he gets back into the programme. He'll won't listen and then that's it.
You can carry the message (go back to NA), but you can't carry the addict. Spend your money and your time on other people, don't back this manipulative loser.
Let's recap: he gets back into the programme, or out of your life. You are not on this earth to rescue people like him. (Rather work with babies or animals, they are at least appreciative.)
He is a hardcore heroine addict who is taking you for a ride. Perhaps you can read up on co-dependency on Google, even if it's just for the fun.
Best of luck and keep me posted.
