who believed that “Dare” “Just Say No to Drugs” “Partnership for a Drug Free America” and honest open dialog was going to save my children. I was conscientious about sharing the dangers of drugs with my children. I told the story that led to my brothers death at the age of 30 from drug abuse. I showed them pictures of the uncle they never met. How could it be anymore concrete then that? DEATH.
Partnership of America you want to do something constructive take all these drug shows off TV. Call it coincidental but J’s drug use started simultaneously with his fascination with the show “Intervention”. Maybe that should have been my clue that something was up but I honestly thought “here is a show that portrays the very ugly consequences of drug abuse” but maybe it is the trigger. All the “Partnership” does is make me feel like a horrible parent who was obviously asleep at the wheel and worse yet…I still have three children to raise and I don’t know exactly what I should do differently. How messed up is that?
Any other parents notice their addicts fascination in “drug centered” literature or reality TV and movies?
