My 22 year old son is a cannabis addict. Hes been like this since he was 15. Lying stealing our things our money the list goes on. 3 years ago he became homless and turned to petty crime which he was arrested for. Long short he had to leave our town and lived with my brother 25 miles away. For 2 years he sorted his life out,hadda job and a place to live. He did so well until xmas where he left his job has no money to pay his rent etc. Hes almost homeless and unemployed. My son has given up and keeps talking suicide. He just wants to smoke weed not work or know an'y of my family. My husband doesnt wanto to know and won't allow him back because of the past. Im at a loss of what to do. How do i help him if he wont help himself? I feel like its all my fault that hes turned out this way. He won't see a doctor or seek help and really has hit a low. I Don't know what to do. So worried that hes going to do something stupid as he says he will. This is always going to be this way and part of me wants to run away and not deal with it. He doesn't realise how this affects me or even does he care. I just dont know what to do anymore! 😐
