No end in sight
Posted by alib on 15 November 2016.
I am looking for anyone in a similar situation to me. My son has been a drug addict on and off for 10 years. I am at my whits end as to know where to turn to for help. He has been homeless, in prison and in general is a hateful person but because he is my son I always try to see ways of what I thought was helping him. The last 2 years have been hell on earth coping with his behaviour. The way he speaks to me is totally disgusting and if this was happening to a friend of mine I would tell them to stop. I have spent thousands on him trying to get him sorted with places to live and possessions around him & everytime he messes it up. Can anyone give me a bit of advice as what to do? 2 months ago he passed his LGV and now has a good job but instead of putting gas and electric on his meter and food in his cupboards he chooses to buy drugs, then on a Monday he is at my door crying saying he is sorry and he will sort out his life I always end up giving in and letting him in to my house and letting him have food and a shower. HELP please
