Hey guys so I feel like this is more of an “are you in this situation” post. My older sister turns 20 today and two weeks ago she relapsed after being sober and in rehab for 9 months. She came home 3 months ago and was doing great until that point. The Sunday before I went to camp she got kicked out of the house, because she came home high the night before. Now there is about 5 years of backstory for this including jail and about 5 different rehabs. I went to camp feeling broken, but while I was there I made peace with the fact that there was nothing I can do. I’d love to hear anyone else’s stories! Much love!

Obviously my story is not to the extent of yours and I am so sorry you have had to be in the place you are in. I cannot begin to imagine how scary and difficult life must be. Sending prayers for your dear sister and your family <3
I guess my story is that I met this seemingly amazing guy almost a year ago. Knew he came from a very broken family and a dark past. He was always so sweet and caring to me and most people. He liked me and he made sure I knew that I was someone very very special to him and was my only solid support through some hard times. We were friends for months but then 6 months ago it turned into almost a relationship. I hardly saw red flags fr the longest time but then found out he smoked pot, does some other pretty hard core drugs. One day he 'accidently' texted me about doing drugs (it was ment for his best friend) and we got in an ugly disagreement. I told him I couldn't pursue a relationship with him because drugs make them messy and we didn't see thinhgs on the same level. It hurt and was hard plus I worry so much about him. He had past cancer and he is such a sweet, hardworking person but drugs will end up ruining his life and potentially ending it. Its so hard to watch someone in that place especially when they see no wrong in their actions. He will always put drugs first and its why he didn't tell me. I wish I could change his decisions but obviously he isn't willing to change his life.
Sorry this is so long lol I guess the most we can do is be loving (Not condemning or condoning) and to pray for them. Its a long, scary, dark road but God is saving grace. I really hope the best for your sister and her future because I do believe God can take us from the ugly an bring out something beautiful. Love ya girly, keep your chin up!

I’m really sorry both of you are having to go through that. It is so scary. I’m praying for both of you and for them. You are very wise to make peace with this situation and know there is nothing you can do about her choices, blackglimmer. It took me a long time to get there about a year ago, and, while things haven’t been easy since, it has helped immensely.

My story is a bit different, too, but my dad’s an alcoholic and my mom’s a recovering alcoholic. My dad’s been back and forth between sober and stuck back in alcohol since before I was born, and it hurts a lot to watch someone you love go through that, knowing that they’re hurting themselves.

Thank you for starting this forum. It helps so much to talk with other people going through similar situations and to know you’re not the only one going through this and to have someone you can talk to who really understands. <3

The best thing to do is just to accept that there’s nothing you can do. Although that is a long and painful road, and it’s hurts so much to see someone you love knowingly doing that to themselves, it really does help. Thank you guys for sharing! Much love.
