Finally Sunk In

It's taken me a year to Understand, not accept because the moment I understood I accepted, that my kid is an addict. What an incredible moment... relief of a connection, success of finding an explanation, wow, the puzzle pieces came together....and utter heart wrenching empathetic yet selfish despair and I am terrified. Terrified he can't battle because I battle with him but this time it won't help. First post today.

Ime....they only way the addicted will stop permanently is on their own.

The world can slow them down or stop them for a while, but once left to their own way...those that choose to will use again.

Education about my addiction saved me.

I'm sorry for what brings you here DEP but you'll find a lot of understanding and support at SR from people who've been there before.
