They look at me differently - January 13th 2009, 03:13 PM

Ok well my parents know that i have done drugs and they know i still do drugs. They think that just because of my habits that im a different person, all there other children are sobre and clean. It just seems like i get looked down on... They are even kicking me out when i turn 18 wich is in a few months because they cant "handle" me...

I don't know how helpful this post will seem to you, but I'm going to try. I'm not a mom, but I am a sister. And to be honest, I can't say that if my sister told me she was doing drugs I would look at her differently. If you don't want your family to abandon you, stop doing drugs.

What drugs are we talking about? The next question would be how much and how often do you use the drug?
I know that my sister does pot on occasion and I don't look at her any differently - I can't chastise her for doing something that I do too. However, I do not approve of any other drugs and if I heard she was doing them I would be worried and upset - although it would never cause me to abandon her.

I'm falling apart, I'm barely breathing
With a broken heart that's still beating.
In the pain, there is healing.
In your name, I find meaning.
So I'm holdin' on ...
I'm barely holdin' on to you.

It all depends on the values of your family. And even a drug like marijuana can cause some resentment.

Your family is the most important thing you have aside from your health. And you're gambling both away if you keep doing drugs.

to be honest, if the prospect of losing your family is not enough for you to stop using drugs i don't know what would be..
it seems like you have two choices, keep doing drugs and be thrown out of your family home and lose all respect from your family, or quit using and probably get your family back.

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..
