my son has used drugs from the age of 14 he is now 35 over the years he has managed several jobs had a relationship which resulted in a beautiful girl, his relationships all break down because of his obsession with weed and pills. I have tried to help and support him as much as I can but he feels I have let him down all his life. He has cut all communication with me because the last time he visited with his 6 year old daughter, he went into the garden and started to roll a joint. When I told him I wasn't prepared to allow him to do this he went mad using foul language, at this point I told him if he couldn't abide by my rules and respect my wishes he had to leave, so he did. I received various texts over the next 24 hours about how evil I am. This all happened about a month ago since which I cannot get hold of him to talk, I am so upset that he won't talk to me and I'm so frightened we will loose him altogether I don't know what to do.
