heroin & crack - my youngest son

Posted by valerie on 19 December 2016.

Hi am new to this but not to my sons drug addiction , am off work today as i can't face the world, i have had support for years now to help me deal with his addiction and it has been a life line . but now things have changed he is on crack & heroin and can't believe i wish he was just back on coke. He has now started stealing from supermarkets , he turned up on my doorstep unkempt slept for 2 days ate all my food , drank a bottle of brandy then disappeared again . we have just had a new grandchild and all the focus once again is all on my son and his addiction. I know i am going to have to dig deep and tell myself off and put the focus back on myself and the rest of the family or christmas will be spoilt.
