My current roommate has two small children, one is 3 yrs & the other is 6mos. She drinks everyday at least 2 40oz most times more. She is usually joined by her boyfriend and they both are completely incapsitated by time they go to bed, On top of the alcohol they also occasionally (i use that word very lightly) use meth. Her more than him by a lot. I would say she smokes meth at least once a week, but usually more. Alcohol is definatly her poison of choice, but one usually triggers the desire for the other. She claims to bo longer be using, only drinking, but I know she is lying. My dillema is regarding her kids, If I didn't see her interaction with them everyday, then I would just report it, but I am highly against getting someones kids taken, and these kids are very well taken care of and loved. She always feeds them, and bathes them daily, and gives them lots of love and attention. They are in no wat neglected, but I still fear that she will drive drunk with them in the car, or sometimes I've seen her forget to take the baby upstairs when she goes to bed cause the baby is asleep and therefoe not making her presence known. Even worse she almost dropped the baby down the stairs one night trying t carry her up in her car seat but she was so drunk she had no balance. I don't feel that the kids are in any immediate danger, I just fear for what could happen eventually. I cant talk to her about it cause we are on bad terms as a result of the drug use (I am an addict too trying to get clean) and I kicked her out with a 30 day notice, so we are not speaking at all. I am very torn on what is trully the best for her kids, as she wont even admit that she has a problem. Should I just stay out of it and hope for the best, or file a report and posibly start a huge war?
