Hi Sue, in regards to my son 23 years at that time, I had to use tough love. It hurt me more than it hurt him and the only contact was a phonecall on his birthday and Xmas. No visits. It seemed to have worked because after leaving home, he worked for another relative and he'd cleaned himself up. He's a different man today. Ever so obliging and helpful and so considerate. It was worth the wait. He's been working fulltime farming over the past 2 years and has now advance to a Manager's position. He is doing exceptionally well. Tough Love, is exactly that, T O U G H!! We visit him at least once a month. I wish you all the best in regards to your son's wellness and also to you. Keep strong.

I understand exactly where you're coming from. I had to do the same thing to my son of 23 years then. It's been 10 years since, and he's much better now. He is a lot more respectful of us now and plus I did miss him a lot.
