It is like an epedemic, and no matter how we raise our children, the temptation is there...My guess is he and his mates do it together...The problem is that they never get that initial high they got when they first took end up taking more and more to try and emulate that feeling....and this puts a real strain on their health. I think you have to be brutally honest with your son and try and sit down with him. My son has been doing drugs for 4 years..he has lied, stolen and got into trouble with the police...and it all started with Weed....He has done cocaine, his last choice of use was Mcat, and that on top of alcohol is a recipe for a down hill spiral....The biggest lesson I have learned through this awful journey is to NOT ENABLE them..that means no helping out with rent, money for petrol, bailing them out of loans they may have......its heart breaking. All the signs were there, but initially I chose to ignore them, cause like you I never thought he would touch drugs....Be strong hunni, there are plenty of parents on here with very valuable advice, or just to listen and support.....Never give up on your child, but with the same token, dont enable them to continue their life style.....hugs hunni xxx
