Some of you have seen my entries regarding my son, who is 24 and an addict. Last night, or I should say very early this a.m., he came home very drunk. My husband and I are devestated. Our other son (21) heard his brother vomiting outside and came and told us something was wrong. After we confronted son #1, he said he was trying to vomit so that we wouldn't smell alcohol on him. STRANGE!!! Our son has been in rehab (outpatient for a month) we really thought we were turning the corner. Now we don't know what to do. We ended up having to call the police during this confrontation last night. Never ever in my wildest dreams could I have thought I would do that to my own child. He was just unreasonable, verbally abusive etc. The police were good at de-escalating the situation. We all went to bed and tried to sleep. I am so sorry if I am rambling. I am at my wits end. As I am typing our son is in his room sleeping off a hangover. My husband and I have told him we are finished living with this kind of stress under our roof. Any suggestions, words of encouragement, like stories, anything would be helpful.
