Hi I am a single mother of a 19 year addict son. He has used for the past three years. His drug of choice is meth. He has been clean for 2 months. He did it himself and I am very proud of him for that. I kicked him out of my house September 1, 2014. I lived for three years of what I considered close to hell. I love my son so very much but I couldn't take it any longer. He has been "couch hopping" He has no place to call home. He is semi homeless. I do not let him spend the night at my home. I let him visit - but as hard as it is I make him leave. My son is begging me to let him live with him again. He swears he will be different than before. He swears he will continue to be drug free. He cries to me that he really needs his mom. We have not living family for support. He is truly alone. I am not sure what to do. Should I let him move back in with me. Should I wait several more months to make sure he stays clean. I CANNOT go back to the way it was when we lived together. He stole everything of value I had. He wrecked my house. He had strangers constantly coming over. He stole my car several times. He stole my credit card several times. He would leave sometimes for days at a time. I would be a nervous wreck he was somewhere dead. Please give me some advice .... Should I let him move back in or not ...... Thank you kindly .....
