Getting a Grasp
Enabling is destroying my life. My son has recently been arrested again for drinking on probation. He was in jail for 7 days and I unplugged my phones, so he could not make contact with me. PO got him into a half-way house and he left today. I wrote him and told him not to contact me until he has some positive news...no begging, whining, or empty promises.
I'm starting to get a grasp on this enabling process, but it's a hard addiction to break. Al-anon meetings are going to be a must in my life.
I wrote a story about a month or so ago and appreciated all the advise I received. There is light at the end of the addiction and it's called hope and prayer. Hope this helps someone else out there wavering with a big decision about enabling...stop now, please.
