My father started drugs (meth) about 5-6 years ago as a way to cope with my grandpa passing away. Ever since then he's been an addict. Its really gotten bad over the pass 2 years and continues to get worse. Since he loss his job he's home all day and has nothing to do so he turns to drugs. My dad was once a man who loved his wife and daughter and would do anything to make them happy. My dad always had a job to support us. My daddy was a bigger man hes about 5'10 maybe 6 foot he had a gut, big arms and chubby cheeks. Now his stomach has flatten his cheeks have disappeared. He sleeps days at a time and can be so hateful to us. He cheats, steals and lies. But i keep praying and hoping that one day my dad sees what its doing to my mother and me and realize that its not the kind of life he wants. I pray that he will stop hanging around strung out people and find some better friends. I love my dad and i hope he gets help soon.
