Why is it so much harder to get over a narcissist?

I left him 8 months ago.. we were still in contact for 5 months after the breakup. But I feel like this is the hardest relationship to get over! My other relationships, were healthy, y ex’s respected me and I got over them quick.. maybe because I was going out and partying all the time.. this time I’m not doing anything, I don’t party, I’m going to school and working full time and taking care of my son full time. I constantly dwell on my ex and I’m over it.. I have dreams and nightmares about him every night. It’s not fair! He decided to choose drugs over us.. I didn’t want this, he did! I’m sorry I just needed to vent.
