been to my sons flat today, words cannot describe what its like, but i suppose at least its his home until he loses that too, tried to talk to him but as usual its all my fault, hes says there is no point in being clean as no one trusts him, and he has nobody who cares for him, i really dont know where we go from here, part of me wants to turn my back and leave him to it but if i do im scared of what he will do, how can he do this to me again and again, there seems to be nothing anyone can say or do to get through to him. Im at a loss to understand this latest relapse as he had done so well building a life free of drugs after many years of being at rock bottom, he knows how much he has to lose and what his addiction has done to our family, but he still is choosing the wrong path. I feel sick all the time waiting for that call bringing bad news. I have told him again and again how much he is loved. Its 17 yrs since he first started using drugs and I cant bear to think of living this hell for much longer something has got to change but what ? I know there are no easy answers but I find a little comfort just writing my thoughts down and on here no one judges me, I just wish I had just a tiny bit of hope left
