Re: Sister is an addict...What do I do now?
Unfortunately I've been through the addiction process before with my stepdad which one of the reasons I'm freaking out about my sister. My stepdad was addicted to vicotin, ultram, ultraset etc due to hip problems and bad replacement at the age of 35. He/we begged his doctor for other meds and several times met with them about his addictions but they would stop for a couple months then go back to the same meds. After 10 yrs of pure hell my step dad couldn't sleep, got fired from work, couldn't work because he was so messed up. Finally in 2006 he fell asleep driving after taking vicotin, ambien and drinking and was killed after his truck hit a tree. My family went through so much during the addiction and after his death. I am terrified my sister is headed down the same path.
At the moment she is no longer speaking to me because I fessed up and told her mom everything.
