Posted by mother of an addict on 17 December 2014.
I would like to begin by saying I LOVE MY SON however there are times when He has hurt me so much I don't want to live. He is not my only child, he is not my only child to try drugs. I have reached a point where I know that to put him out of the family home is what I should do to protect my daughter who is only 17yrs old. I know he would not survive and I can't do it!!! I am a health care professional a drug councillor and I am lost. My son has been smoking skunk on a daily basis for at least four years his behaviour is confrontational and aggressive. He now has his own child and it fills me with terror to think that he will not be around to see his son grow. I have even considered organising to have him taken into a secure environment against his will in order to get the drugs out of his system naturally this would not be legal and the quote was costly. Are there any mothers in a similar position who can shine a light in my tunnel, in fact I think I need an electrician
