I have a 21 year old son that is addicted to pot and alcohol. He is off at college so we do not see him very often. We have known about the alcohol abuse for a while now and two weeks ago told him he either gets into a program or we were going to make changes in how we support him. This week we found out that he has been using pot for over 1 year. We suspected but had no real evidence. His girlfriend just broke up with him and told us all about what was going on. She didn't want to be a part of his addiction. We confronted him today and told him all money stops. His rent is paid for through August so he has a place to live. He refuses to admit he has a problem and denies the use of pot. He is my only child and has so much going for him. We have laid down the rules. We told him he will have to get a job to have money for gas and food. What do we do next? We pray daily and have given this situation to the Lord...knowing at this point He may be the only one that can get through to him. It is killing me. I just want to see my loving, sensitive son back.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
