My siblings are addicted to drugs

Posted by JH12 on 10 February 2015.

I have one brother and one sister that are both older than me. I am the youngest in our family and everyone of my family members are addicted to either drugs or alcohol. I am the only one that maintains a clean and sober life for the sake of my kids, fiance, and myself. I have always been the caregiver in the family and  I love my family especially my sister and brother too much to walk away. My brother is currently in prison for a delivery of methamphetamine charge. He has always had anger problems but recently before prison he really did some damage to the family and myself. My sister who had always been my bestfriend too just recently got out of prison. She has been out for a short 5 months and went straight to partying, drinking alcohol, smoking pot, and now shooting up. I'm at my last straw and physically and mentally I just don't know how much more I can take. My priority in life is to raise my daughters as positive as possible, I just don't know how to do this with addictions all around us.

You sound like a really strong person coping with all that you have been with supporting both your brother and sister. But its such a hard thing to deal with and It sounds like maybe  you could  do with some support for yourself.
The Icarus Trust is a charity which is there to support the friends and families who are dealing with a loved one's addiction. We could offer you the support of one of our 'Family Friends' who you would be able to talk with. They are trained volunteers with loads of experience of the kinds of situation you are having to cope with and it might help you to have a chat with one of them. It is a free service.
You can contact us on or visit the website
Please try to get some support for yourself so that you can stay strong for your family.
Good Luck!
