Since the age of 16, unbeknown to us, my son started smoking weed. then at 18 he started cocaine. He is a self harmer with suicidal thoughts. We are getting help from professionals but it is destroying our family. he has a 15 year old brother who hates what he is doing to himself and us. We have identified his dealers, found weed in his bedroom and shopped him to the police. We are now finding empty bottles of vodka in his bedroom. At the moment he is holding down a job which he is doing well at !!! which i find incredible bearing in mind what he is doing to himself. I can see the path he is taking and fear that we will end up burying our son. Dont know what to do to stop him and pull him back. He is breaking our hearts.
