My brother is 35 years old and recently moved in with my mom where I am living with my 6 year old daughter. He is staying out all night, coming home at 6:00 AM and going to work all day. That is not his usual MO. Normally when things are bad he just doesn't go to work and then gets fired. Now that he is with my mom and me, he is forced to go to work to not be found out. That is how stuid he thinks we are. It used to be coke (so he claimed), but I think it's meth or whatever else helps him keep up this pace. He looks awful. Skinny as I have ever seen him, pale, sunken cheek bones, dark circles, horrible cough and sunflower seeds are everywhere. Still not sure why sunflower seeds but they pop up when he is using. All the signs he has shown over the years while being an addict. He has thrown this in my face and I don't know how to help him. My mom is oblivious and my siblings have had it. I have said nothing to him because I don't know what to say. He is going to kill someone in a car or kill himself. I have really strong feeling something bad will happen soon. If anyone out there has had to deal with a family memeber who is an alcoholic and drug addict, my family could use some guidance on this. We are at our wits end.
