I need advice

Unread postby reen » Tue Jul 13, 2010 10:59 am

My son is a drug and alcohol abuser. He just went into rehab yesterday. Before going he was a mess and almost destroyed my house. At the time that I told him to leave, I told him that I didn't want to see him again till he could prove that he was 6 months sober. Now he chose to go to rehab, my problem is when he gets out, do I take him back in? I'm afraid if I don't he will be forced go to the friends he does drugs with.

Just a quote that someone gave to me last week before I went to the rehab hospital to pick up my drug-addict husband.
"After Me.... Your're First!"
I ha ve to make myself conscious of these few words all the time I whisper these words several times a day.

Take care of yourself first. Be good to you . Then be good to the other one!
