Greetings, Forum Members. It might come as a shock to you that I am not a parent, but a child. I did not have anywhere else to clear my thoughts. Kindly bear with me. I am a 21 year old male from a city in India. I failed my final year exams this year. I have a tendency to smoke cigarettes. I help my dad in his business. No felonies except for a few traffic tickets. And at times I 'take' a few bucks somewhat like 250 to 500 Rupees(roughly 5-10 US dollars) when I am in a tight spot. I have got the privilege of 6-7 thousand bucks as pocket money. I live in my parents' house, participate actively in the matters of the home and workplace. But this stealing thing makes me think that I am an idiot. With time I have reduced socializing with people, deactivated facebook and I get restless at times. Am I the kind that needs punishment or should I do something else ?
