My beautiful son was an adddict for 5 years, it started by a girl friends mom sharing pain pills, it progressly got worse. Once he moved in with me after been on his own for 4 years, I began to see the signs that at that time didnt know I was witnessing and ENABLING an addict, after multiple car accidents, personal stuff pawned, stereo equipment gone, horrible confrontations because I wouldnt give him money, suicide attepmts- asking for help, I cried like a wounded animal thinking about my sons pain and realizing his addiction. A drwaing that I found in his room while searching for drugs during one of his sudden trips, opened my to my ENABLING HABITS I too had. Me given money for gas, food, cigarretes, oil changes.... were used for drugs. I once followed him and he was asking people at Walmart parking lot for help, the pain and sorrow I felt for him it cannot be put into words.
He is now a year and 3 months SOBER and is even a sponsor to a young man that came into rehab while he was still there-Happy Dance!!!!
He is a very smart young man, and wants to go to school and he is serious about it. We cannot afford to
to send him, O still owe 2,000 to rehab and 1.000 to lawyers that helped me make it mandatory for him to go to rehab. Im a proud mom, he wants to go to school and buy land and raise cattle and be out helping people.
Gabriel is 22 years old and very hard worker. Please help.
NOT AN ENABLER ANY MORE!!!
