My brother has been addicted to smoking rock and ice for many years. 7 years ago he had a major issue with ice but after the long haul of trying to support him, God found him a wonderful girl for him that straightened his life out. He got out of the drug scene, got a good job and was about to get married until he started bashing up his fiance.
My brother has always had a problem with drinking and a larger problem with his anger they tried counseling and it worked only temporarily until he started bashing her up again. Something went terribly wrong, why was he doing this nobody knew.
He'd stayed away from the drugs for a very long time, but after his fiance got a violent restraining order against him he started back on the drugs. We knew because almost every second day he'd be back asking my mum and dad (who are bother older in there 60s and 70s) for money.
Every twist and turn he'd ask for money then he stared lending money of every person in the family other times he'd come over just after he's got high and dribble rubbish talking about things that mean nothing. My parents don't know what to do any more I've had a gut full. I can't deal with him and feel like smashing his face in every time i see him.
It was only today before i went to church i started thinking what would Jesus do in this situation? I know the devil has taken control of my brother and he needs to come to realization that he does have a drug problem something he'd never admit in the past.
He was so stuffed up years back, having his girlfriend living with my elderly parents not paying rent, doing drugs inside the house while we had young children around, i hated him so much back then.
I stopped talking to him for 3 years because it was too much. Truthfully i have a big family, my father didn't want to admit that he was on drugs. My mother knew because he'd be off his face talking rubbish to her every time talking about the church trying to pretend that he'd have something in common with her. Then asking her for money.
Now it's worse, the only good thing is he's not living with my parents any more but he's back again on drugs using everyone. We don't know what to do any more i really wish he'd get locked up in jail where there would be some sort of detox program. I know it sounds horrible but what would you do, when will this stop?
