I just found out something about my sister and I need advice

Posted by Papew on 11 December 2014.

My sister has been on bad drugs for over 8 years. She is 28 years old. She started using heroin when she was pregnant with my niece.That was over 5 years ago. My sister has been in 4 different rehabs and did everything she was suppose to do to get clean.She got off probation and did the time for all of her charges that was brought against her. She has full custody of her daughter now. A little over a year ago she used Bath Salts, Meth, and whatever she can get a hold of. She started dating her boyfriend around that time too. Early this year, they got an apartment together. She looked great, she was getting her life together and we spent a lot of time together. It was very nice because we have always had a rocky relationship as siblings because of the years of drug abuse. BUT, everything is turned for the worst. She is so mean and nasty. She told our mom to drop dead and she is pushing all of the family away. We can barely ever get in her house because most of the time she won't let us inside. She acts fucking CRAZY! Simple things that take moments to do, take hours ( like shopping, taking hours in the bathroom or like never coming out, she always have tons of people at her house) We hardly spend any time together and she calls everyday needing help with money, rides, babysitter, or just to yell and start fights. I gave one of her friends a ride to gamestop to sell a game because he was gonna give my sister money to pay her rent. Then I got the news, She is selling dope! He didn't know I had no idea. He figured since i was her brother that I was in on it and i knew about it already. I have told my boyfriend about what I learned and I don't know what to do. I feel an obligation to tell the family because I am the only one that knows the truth. But if I go and be a rat, it could have severe consiquences. My niece can be taken away from my sister and sis could go to prison for a long time. and my sister would never talk to me again. Or worse, she could do something to me. I don't know what to do.
