Does anyone have experience of cocaine abuse?

I would reaaly appreciate anyone sharing their experience of living with someone who has/had a cocaine habit. I asked my partner to leave at the beginning of the year after finding out that he had been taking some in the house. This followed the discovery that he had run up a lot of debt of 20k+. I know that i have done the right thing but i suspect it has been going on for a long time. Hearing other people's experience might help me understand some of the frankly unbelievable behaviour in the past that I accepted as my norm (hence the user name). Thanks

What is it you would like to know?

Thanks for responding. I'm not sure really. We were together 20 years and for most of that time his moods were volatile. I thought he was depressed but now i wonder.

Yes, lies, deceit, cheating, whores.
Considering no-one else, definitely not me or his child.

Thanks. Lying definitely - not sure that he ever cheated. I thought as well as the depression he might have had fibromyalgia as he went through a phase of not getting out of bed, complaining of weakness and muscle pain. Brain fog all the time, always ill, mood swings. Its been hell to be honest. But long term drug use? I would love to know, but he will never own up to it if it were the case.
