I am new here. My dad has been a drug addict for about 15 years. To my knowledge at this time his drug of choice is percacet, but I think he may have started using cocaine, as he is contantly sniffeling. I wrote him a letter about a month ago stating that way he made me feel, what he is doing to my family (espically my mother), and what he is doing to his body, he has hep C, so his health is really declining. At the time that I wrote the letter I had convinced my mother to leave, in hopes that he would go to treatment. After I gave him the letter he stopped using for about a week. Looked in to treatment, but found out the his insurance did not cover it. The next time I talked to him I could tell he had been using. I told my mother this but she is in complete denial saying that he is just "tired"...I am sick of that word..."tired"...the famous excuse used in my household. Anyways, I want to be a suppot to my dad...and in the past when he has made attempts to stay sober I have been is number one supporter. But I am tired. And feeling a little lost. Any suggestions???
