I have covered up my son's drug addiction for years. He is 33 now and is guilt ridden and hates himself. When he fights his addiction and has good days he is a helpful, kind supportive son. But his demon is crack cocain which eats away at his brain and his weakness. Over the years i have paid out thousands of pounds to drug dealers in fear of what they will do/have done to him and to stop these evil bas***ds coming to my home. I am in credit card debt because unknown to me my son used my card every day for a month taking out cash totalling over £13000! My son is a liar, a thief and sneaky but never violent or nasty towards me. I am a strong woman but so very, very tired of pretending to family that all is well. My heart goes out to you all and to your loved ones. I know i have done many things wrong over the years, enabling my son. I have no idea how he has kept his job, thank god for that. He was off work last week and nearly didnt go in today but he did. Every day is a huge challenge for him and for me
