CANT TAKE NO MORE
14 Feb 2015

Oh Marie , hugs to you....it's hard trying to save an addict, and almost always never happens, cause the addict has to want it ...what a remarkable woman you are! Sometimes letting go and helping yourself is the best thing you can do, to help you cope with everything...and that might mean letting mum n dad get on with it.....you have a family and they have to be your priority Hunni xxxx I'm a mother of a Addicted son..it took me a while to realise that letting go was the best thing I could do for my son....thankfully he is in recovery and he now has my support 100%...,only an addict can set the ball rolling in recovering! Take care sweety, and perhaps find a group for you, where you can talk with others xxxxxx

Hi Marie
So sad for you but what Cant Take No More says is right about looking after yourself and your own family.
If you would like to talk through how you feel The Icarus Trust is a charity which supports the friends and families of addicts because it is such a hard thing to do. We have trained volunteers called 'Family Friends' who you could be put in touch with if you contact us. They would understand how you feel and have a lot of experience talking with people who have experienced what you are going through.
You can contact us on help@icarustrust.org or visit the website www.icarustrust.org
Good luck!
