Cupid’s Advice:

Some people have major problems with drugs and alcohol, and if your partner is one of them, read on for Cupid’s tips on how to help:

1. Get help: Don’t take on your partner’s addiction issues alone.  Get him or her professional help, whether that means a psychiatrist or rehab.

2. Prevent bad behavior: If you know your mate tends to go overboard at a club or bar, try laying off the late night scene for a little while. Suggest going to a movie or doing something active instead.

3. End it: If your partner refuses to change his or her ways, it’s time for you to move on.  You deserve someone who has things figured out and won’t bring extra drama to your life.
