Posted on behalf of @Mimi44 Hi. I am new to this site but have been reading the posts an I see I am in need of outside input. My son is 36 has been an addict for 10 years. I have lived the last four years with him in prison. He was released last June and was doing good. Had a job, girlfriend, reconnected with his son nd then comes the new year an his relapse. I just don’t believe he can handle everyday life. His relapse was very hard for all of us and he just spiraled right back to where he was four years ago. He got arrested two weeks ago when the girlfriend said he pushed her a couple times. She has dropped the charges but the state might pick up the case. He calls begging me to bAil him out but I just can’t hardly talk to him. I am so depressed he let all of this happen again. Yet after all we have done for him and endured I feel awful being mean to him and Can’t accept this is our life. Any words of encouragement and wisdom is appreciated.
