UPDATE for all those with addicted children....

Posted by CANT TAKE NO MORE on 19 May 2014.

Well my son has had one hell of a week...... Went to get antibuse for my son and he was told as he doesnt drink or do drugs every day, this may not be what he needs (after speaking at length to another counsellor whoa greed prior to this) ANGRY is undermining how my son felt....BUT, WE ALL TRIED TO REMAIN POSITIVE... Wednesday court adjourned its been 3 times now his solicitor is pushing to get it thrown out.....Then Friday another counselling session privately.....I took him and waited for him.....he came out with red eyes and hugged the lady and went on to make another appointment.....He really is trying to pull it out the bag and I know how hard it is for him....He wouldnt talk about what was said,other than saying he has opened his soul to her and isnt ready to discuss anything until he is ready......The weekend has been ok..he went out Saturday with an old school friend..walk by the river, lunch and afew laughs....Did he drink??? YES, he had 2...Rome wasnt built in a day as they say..DID he do drugs?? NO, Emphatic reply!!!!   Back to court Wednesday AGAIN....What will be will be.....He knows we are here for him, and he knows this is the best chance he will get.....praying for all those addicts out there.....hugs to all you parents xxx

That is sounding very promising, well done to you and your son, little steps but it all helps.  You need to be able to see improvements so that you can start to trust again, and that is
