Hey, son not using because he's been in and out of jail. He got married last summer, great party, nothing changed . He still thinks he can beat the system even after 15 years. He got a pass last Tuesday, got stabbed..round and round. Good news, I'm healthier, had to really assess my codependency and detach, some days tougher than others

Mom- -I can relate! My codependency issues brought to my knees- brought me to a new level of recovery and with everyday that I continue to detach with love and set boundaries with my adult son the lessons keep comng.
