Hi, I am the mother of a 19 year old son who is addicted to cannabis and also takes cocaine. He has been using drugs since he was 17. I am so depressed and desperate. My emotions range from total despair to anger at why he is putting us through this. He works but struggles to do a whole week and when he gets paid on Fri has spent it all by mon. I guess my main problem is trying to understand why he wants to destroy his life like this. He is clever and good looking and should have the world at his feet. He has suffered from depression and still has counselling and takes medication. I am tired of worrying where it will all end.
