I'm so sad, stressed, and helpless watching my son change. He's been using pot for the past 2 years a few times a week. Now it's become a daily habit. He tried to hide it at first and lies to us about using it. Now he doesn't care, he tells us he won't quit. My plate is already full with my elderly Father's health. He had a stroke in April and now his dementia has gotten worse. My father no longer knows who I am, and doesn't remember my mother, or my 3 kids. It's terrible seeing him go thru this. And it's even more difficult watching my son being an addict. He looks unkept, has lost weight, and his behavior is explosive. We find his drug paraphernalia laying around which he's become sloppy about putting away. We throw it away, and he becomes so angry and demands for us to pay him back for the items he's purchased. How did my kind son turn into this? I'm at a loss, what can I do for him? Or do I leave him alone and let him decide to quit?
