Helping an addict never helps
No matter how hard I tried to help my son cope with life or solve his problems, I failed. All I did was enable him to continue to mess up and not take responsibility for anything. He got everything he wanted and I got nothing but more misery. Saying "no" to him was the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but it saved both of our lives (at least for the time being). I pray I can stay strong enough to say no to him when he leaves rehab and needs my help again.
