QUOTE (Glen @ Oct 29 2006, 07:54 AM) *
Just keep her cut off if she's back on drugs. Obviously, that's all that might work at this point. It's amazing how someone in her situation can have so much criticism for the imperfections of others. Just a self-image and denial thing. If the rehab were perfect, she might actually have to follow through.
When I became "benevolence minister" at our church, we got dozens of phone calls from strangers every month because the addicts caught on that we would give people money if they told a sad enough story. I changed the policy to give them a chance to do something good for the money, like stack chairs, sweep our parking lot, etc. Funny, the phone calls just stopped and we could use the money to actually help some people rather than support them in their habit.



My son is a crack addict and has taken him self off to a well known rehabilitation center. I am thrilled. I do not make excuses or avoid issues with him, but have been known to bail him out. I look after his finances (his cheques are given to me by him, I pay his bills and he gets the rest dolled out as he wants it-this is his choice), I also offer him unlimited emotional support. He does not lie to me about his problem, nor does he steal from me or otherwise. I feel he is really ready to quit but I am scared that when he comes home I will not deal with him properly and make his recovery harder. What am I supposed to do or better yet not do? Does anyone know what I can do to stop being an enabler? I took a quiz and I am labled as an enabler. I don't want to help him do drugs and have sat him down and told him that I will not help him at all if he does drugs, but not sure this is enough. Is any subjects off limits? Are there foods I shouldn't offer him when he comes over? I don't know anything about this.
Help !!
