Drugs or suicide by

Hi again and thank you to all who responded to my last posts. My son has been in communication with me today said he’s scared to come, hasn’t showered for a week and still has the same clothes on from a week ago! This is not my 38 year old ex royal marine that I know He has also implied that he is suicidal, he is coming down from a week of cocaine but how do we deal with this? Any thoughts gratefully received I know if he’s going to do it he will and I will provide support but the dilemma is ‘tough love’ support vs gentle approach to support his come down after a week of cocaine ...

Feel totally desperate about son’s addictions. by

Hi there I can also 100% relate to what you are going through and am today faced with the same situation, do I kick him out tough love . He is currently living with us my son (38) split from his girlfriend most relationships ended because of cocaine. It’s truly heartbreaking ... He’s been in it for the last 4 days I’ve no idea where he is but have just received a txt from him full of remorse and guilt and apologies..... My last resort is to kick him out as I believe he really does have to hit rock bottom before engaging in any change. The problem for me is that he will commit suicide and I would have to live with that burden! My dear loving son is a good man and a great human being when sober .... It is a dilemma and I don’t know what advice to offer other than you are not alone I feel overwhelmed this week but so so glad I have found this site listening to stories that I can identify with.... Every emotion and all the physical pain we go through I can empathise with and now realise I’m not alone .... Stay strong sending hugs to you xxx
