Insanity- Doing the same thing over and over, yet expecting different results.

I learned that here. lol

I'm sorry for what is going on in your world.
Years ago, I would have been so angry to have someone turn my son in for stealing.
I would have protected him tooth and nail. Then...
I realized he needed a push. If nothing was done, he would just keep stealing from me. I had him arrested. You may know the story. It's a long one.
Anyway, I feel for your elderly parents. They were raised from another time.
They're hoping that what they do for him is helping. You and I both know that's not the case.
Your sister is only wanting to protect your parents.
Today, I'd have to side with her. He needs a push. Jmho.
Sending prayers up for you and your family, sweetie. It's a tough call for everyone involved.

Hi Linda, Yes my AS sure does need a push. The push we have decided to give him is go for help. If you won't then forget you have a family. I cannot have a relationship with someone who would hurt my family like this even if he is my own son. My son is not only dealing with a drug addiction but a gambling addiction. Hi biological father was the same way & that is why I divorced him. Maybe its something in the genes..................but how can that be true when my younger son is nothing like that.
Thanx again Linda for the support.

The scientists say that addiction is genetic, but it occurs on multiple genes and that is why it is so hard to treat. My husband and I both came from addictive families but neither of us got addicted but my daughter did. It must be a recessive trait so that my husband and I carry the gene but do not manifest the illness. My daughter does. Must be a one in four chance type of thing. None of my siblings are addicts but my husband's brother was. Genetics is a fascinating science but so complicated. Hugs, Marle
