Friends, lifters, strangers…
I find myself in a situation and i’m looking for advice, opinions, anything of value in regards to this topic.
BE WARNED its probably going to be a long one.
It all started when my sister entered rehab for the use of cocaine. She broke the rules and interacted with a man twice her age. When she returned from rehab she continued and established a relationship with him. This was a toxic move.
Over the years she became more distant, I don’t really even remember the last time I saw a genuine happy smile on her face.
There were times that I picked her up to take her to our soccer games and she was passing out/falling asleep in my car.
It came to a point where I received a phone call at 4 in the morning from my sister. High as a kite on cocaine, this gave her the confidence to tell me that she has been using and is highly addicted to heroine. She had admitted that she has tried to end her life twice.
She has since been to rehab twice, first time she was kicked out as she tested positive and the second attempt she did make through it but it was only 20 days.
I guess i’m spilling this on the internet because I don’t know what to do… I’m looking for advice I suppose? How does a family cope? Is anyone experiencing this? Do you maintain a relationship?
I find myself texting/calling her to make sure she is still alive. TO make sure she is home. To make plans so I know she is safe and not using. Am I enabling her?
Whether you are the addict or a loved one of the addict i’d love to hear you out. IF you are not comfortable posting feel free to PM me.
