Well, he is doing what every 21 year old should be doing. Looking for a job, applying to college and dealing with his legal issues. I am proud and cautious all at the same time. This is the first time ever, that he is doing these things all on his own…no prodding or whining from me at all. I am so happy for him, his friends have come back! Ya know the good ones!
He has also heard from the “other” ones as well. I read a message on his Facebook. He was replying to a “other kind of friend”. This kid asked if J wanted to hang out with him and J’s response almost made me cry. He said “Dude, I am sorry but I can’t hang out with you anymore, I am clean and I am going to stay that way.” His “friend” was positively indignant. He said “What? Do you think you are better than me?” and J’s response was “Nope, we are both addicts and I can not hang out with you because I don’t want to be tempted…period!.”
Miracles can happen…I just really hope this one is J’s!
