and this one was no different. He was arrested last night for possession and DUI. Interestingly he may not have actually been under the influence of anything, probably because he had not gotten the chance to use yet. He of course called me and asked if I could pick him up and I of course said no. His girlfriend picked him up and brought him home. I am at a complete loss??? What happens now? His car, which is actually our car is impounded. He will lose his license. He is on probation and probably headed to jail. We don’t want to pay for a lawyer again so he is going to have to get a public defender which means he is really doomed. I am numb and feel physically ill. I am going to pick up our car which he will no longer have access to ever again. What do I do? I am afraid if we ask him to leave now we are going to push him head first back into the drugs full time 24/7. Believe it or not he is an intermittent user meaning he uses for a couple days stops for a few days sometimes weeks. It is part of the reason he thinks he has this all under control. IDIOT!
I must have done something seriously wrong…my bad genes are going to doom us all. My beautiful oldest son who was a straight A student and going to work in tv production and editing is an addict and is going to jail and there isn’t a damn thing I can do about it. Why do they have a local Police Blotter? Why not just call it the humiliation blog. Do you guys have that in your town? A place where they announce to the world that your son is a stupid addict who was arrested for blah blah blah…I am considering taking up drinking.
