Confused Person

Can someone be addicted to a person? I ask because I have quit all of my prior addictions, I no longer smoke, I rarely drink and every know and then Iíll pop a pill but I canít say itís an addictions because itís not a need itís a want. However lately I feel like my problem is my partner, I think Iím addicted to him. He has a problem that he will not get help for and he continues with the classic lines of Iíll stop I need help but wonít actually go get help. Now I know I am enabling him by buying it for him, but I feel like he is the addiction I canít quit. I want to move forward in my life, I want to have money to be able to do things and not just spend it all on drugs.... I know this is a toxic situation but I canít convince myself to stop and walk away. Has anyone else dealt with something like this and if so how did you finally end the cycle?
What we do in the dark always comes to light.

Well... I'm not a mental health professional. However this sounds like a case of codependency to me. Here are links to 6 articles, from PC's archives, on the subject:
