DEAR DEIDRE: UNLESS he gets off drugs, my partner has been banned from going to my niece’s third birthday party.
I had been worried that he was cheating on me, so I checked his phone and found messages showing he was on drugs.

He said he’d been on cocaine but stopped and was now on methadone, which he says is used to treat addicts.
I can’t talk to him about it as he gets very defensive. He says he’ll be off it soon but can’t stop yet. We have been together for 18 months. He is 36 and I’m 29. I have children aged nine and seven.
I confided in my sister and she and her husband say he can’t come to their house and I should kick him out.
They don’t want him near their children unless he can prove he’s clean, and also say he shouldn’t be near my kids.
DEIDRE SAYS: It is damaging for children to grow up around someone abusing drugs.
Methadone is used to help wean addicts off drugs such as heroin but is dependence-inducing. Your partner’s “soon” may never arrive.
Tell him your relationship will end unless he gets help. Talktofrank.com will be able to provide support.
