What should I do ?
Posted by Livlov594 on 19 January 2018.
Hi. I’m 14.My biological dad was is an alcoholic , we moved away from him when I was 5. When he sobered up we visited him like 2 times a year ( he lived very far away) , until he started drinking again. I haven’t seen him in five years. I’ve always suspected my mum does drugs. She used to be in an abusive relationship and ever since they got together I knew they both did drugs. I was about 8 when I realised the both did. Their relationship has ended and now my mum is with someone else. I am now certain that mum and her partner do cocaine, there’s many reasons how I know but that would take to long to explain. My mum can’t afford to pay bills most of the time and is in a lot of debt but she always makes sure she has cocaine. She does it nearly every night but she doesn’t know that I know she uses cocaine. I’m worried she’ll die from it or never stop , I don’t know what to do. I have 2 sisters , one is 16 the other is 10. I want to tell her I know because maybe she’ll stop but I can’t. I know she’ll just deny it and have a go at me. I don’t feel like I can trust any of my friends or talk to any family members , What should I do ?
