Question Im new alittle and my b/f's and mine addiction(s)

Hi all,
I'm New here, my mom told me about these boards.
Here a little about my boyfriend and I.
I will be 21 in july, hes 23 we have been daiting for about 5 years and have been living together for about 2 1/2.
When we were younger, before we started living together we smoked pot and drank somethings on the weekends. I smoked pot till about 2 years ago, he still smokes on a daily bacis (about 10 times a day).
I went into a depression about 2 years ago, thats when I quit the pot. The doc. put me on anti depressents, and xanax and valume. I was around 18 at the time. I took the valume for panic attacts, but didnt like the xanax.
So now were living togther and for about 6+ months now we have been talking 1 xanax and 1 vicidon a day. We don't take them during the day, just at night. He pops his and drinks beer and smokes his pot. I pop mine and drink vodka and cranberry juice. Not enought to get me drunk, but b/c I like the way the lortab feels and the vodka intensives(s) it. This a DAILY thing. My anxiety is now coming back during the day when I don't take a xanax. Wile at work, thats when the panic attacts start to come on, (I work in a public place) If we could afford it I'm sure we would take more. We don't get them from the doc.
He doesent know I'm on here posting this, but I felt the need to. I really really don't want to quit. I know I'm not ready to. I also know that mixing alchoal with pills is BAD.
Our parents dont know anything about this. His mom knows we drunk, but not as much as we do. She thinks its a weekend type thing.
Life id very stressful right now, it just kind of helps, well thats what I tell myeslf. I know he wont stop somkeing the pot. Thats not why I came on here. I just need advice, I have spent the last 2 hours reading post from you all.
Anyone can help/ give me some advice will REALLY help. I know may of you take many more pills then we do, but I dont want to get to talking 10+ a day. I just dont want to quit.
Sorry about my long post. I hope I can get some help from you all,
Renee

You aren't ready. You said you don't want to quit. And untill you have that desire, you won't. So when you decide that you've had enough you need to come back and state so. Otherwise, why bother? You are way too young to get hooked on drugs, and your relationship is not a healthy one for you or you BF because you've grown used to using together. How are one of you going to quit when the other won't? You both have to make a committment to quit, and then re-evaluate what your relationship is based on and make a tough decision. Is this relationship good for both of you? You have to take on a couple of tough issues. When you decide, I'd be glad to support you.
