Cannabis is ruining my family
Posted by Stevie on 4 December 2017.
I felt very lucky to have been blessed with 3 beautiful boys but it was hard work, particularly with the older two, as they were both naughty and got into trouble at school. The older boy was very successful and continues to do extremely well in his working life, however he is addicted to smoking pot. He works very hard but away from his job, all he does is smoke cannabis. Our middle son is even worse....his whole life revolves around cannabis smoking, from morning till night. He messed up his A levels and has been doing dead end bar jobs for two years now. We are desperately trying to help him find a good job that will improve his future. They are 23 and 20 and cannabis has ruined our lives....sometimes i wonder when the nightmare will end and long for them to move out of home. Our youngest son is the polar opposite...never in trouble, very responsible and extremely upset that his brothers take drugs. He is angry that he has to live with this, as are me and my husband. We have tried everything to make them stop but nothing has changed and they refuse to give it up. Things got so bad that one of them had to move in with my parents, which helped the situation for a while, however, he is now running rings round them as well. I hope and pray everyday that they will grow out of this and i will get my boys back because i feel so desperately worried and ashamed. To the outside world we are the perfect happy family , married for ages, three handsome lads but our daily lives are full of resentment, anger and disbelief....Does anyone else have a similar experience?
