Dear Straight Talk: Please help. I am 22 and have been with my boyfriend for two years. He was the greatest person — that is, until some personal problems led him to try meth. He was instantly addicted. He is such a different person today and I often think about leaving him. But then I remember who he used to be and try to have hope. He has tried to quit but keeps relapsing. What can I do for him and how I can keep my hopes up? — Laurie, Auburn

Kira, 20, Moraga: My friend’s boyfriend was the same way. I’m not sure what he was using, but it was bad. It got where my friends and I couldn’t hang out with her. She wasn’t oblivious to his problem, but he was always so high she couldn’t reason with him. All their arguments were about the same thing. She finally got the courage to break up with him which made him finally listen.
