My siblings are addicted to drugs
Posted by JH12 on 10 February 2015.
I have one brother and one sister that are both older than me. I am the youngest in our family and everyone of my family members are addicted to either drugs or alcohol. I am the only one that maintains a clean and sober life for the sake of my kids, fiance, and myself. I have always been the caregiver in the family and I love my family especially my sister and brother too much to walk away. My brother is currently in prison for a delivery of methamphetamine charge. He has always had anger problems but recently before prison he really did some damage to the family and myself. My sister who had always been my bestfriend too just recently got out of prison. She has been out for a short 5 months and went straight to partying, drinking alcohol, smoking pot, and now shooting up. I'm at my last straw and physically and mentally I just don't know how much more I can take. My priority in life is to raise my daughters as positive as possible, I just don't know how to do this with addictions all around us.
