Thanks again for you input ..Trust and forgiveness are a seperate issue and that is not what I asked about. I don't mind the work but I am searching for knowledge. Can you tell me how crack affected your sex drive? During the time you used and after you stopped? Are the two connected.? I would appreciate this information from anyone willing to share.
