Heroin and my son
Posted by Shaneal on 18 December 2016.
Hi l really just do not think l can take any more l have a large family of 1 daughter and 4 sons and my two eldest sons are drug addicts one in prison and has spent most of his adult life in there and the other son after 20 years and nearly losing his own family he went to rehab for 3 months , he looked so good when he returned and put on weight and l thought the misery was over but l am sure he is back on heroin he has lost weight and he avoids me and l can only put it down to him saying l would be the first to see if he went back on drugs. I have told him that l am worried but he just says hes not doing anything but l know the signs . Part of me tries to fool myself by thinking l might be wrong but l do not think l am maybe l just do not want to face it again. Do l just let him get on with it hes a 36 year old man with 3 kids and if he wants to lose them all because of his selfishness what can l do ? I am so so tired of this my health has suffered my other children to not speak to thier brothers and the pain l feel is unbearable sometimes l just want to die then this pain will stop. Help someone tell me what to do
