Family Member Meth Addict
I'm a long time al-anon member and this past weekend traveled out of State for a graduation for my niece. Her father is my husband's brother. We knew he and his wife have struggled with Meth addiction for many years. They seem normal some of the time, then boom. This weekend was disastrous. I won't bore you with the details but to watch them not show up, talking incoherently, flipping his partial dental plate teeth in and out of his mouth....I've lost my piece of mind. It haunts me. The hovel that they live in...it's awful.
I'm assuming Meth is like every other addiction and recovery is the same but I don't know. Just for today, I'm seeking your wisdom to help me find my peace of mind again. My heart breaks for them, and the pain my husband is in to see it. Is Meth addiction any different than alcoholism?
