I have a 28 year old son that I have been enabling... He has a serious addiction to cocaine, grass and prescription medications. His brother was killed in 2002 and I have over protected him even more since his brother's death. I have financially supported him - even sending him my Christmas money last year to get him out of jail. He promises to do better but relapses.
He met a girl last year and she abuses prescription medication - they have been inseparable. They stayed with her mother who died last year and I have let them stay with me off and on since. They don't pay bills but always promise too. They help some around the house and always remind me that they do...
We got into a argument last weekend and they left after getting over $1,800 in a tax return. They didn't give me any money on past bills and used the argument that I told them to leave as a excuse not to pay me.
I believe I'm sicker than they are. I'm behind in my bills and I have a electric bill due that is over $326. I need some support because I feel so guilty sometimes when I tell them to leave after a argument.
