My brother is an addict. He has been into drugs for over 15 years. He has also been in and out of prison because of his problem. We actually thought after he got out this time, he would stay on the right path. He did well for 8 months. Now he is on a using spree. He has violated his parole by leaving the state and now is a wanted man again. My biggest problem is trying to keep people from enabling his habit. My biggest problem is my mother. She keeps giving in to him and sending him money. This is money she doesn't have. The last time my brother went on this drug spree, he put my mother under so much stress she had a stroke. This is when I found out that they were also in a big financial mess as well. My brother knows if he badgers her enough, she will cave. Now the same thing is happening again. I'm trying to get her to change her phone number, but she won't do it. I keep telling her not to send him money, but she keeps doing it. The bad thing is, that I have noticed the stress coming back like it did before she had her stroke. I am so afraid she will have another. Can anyone give me advice on what to do?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
