My son is pushing thirty. Started smoking regular pot. It alone turned him into someone we didn’t like or saw much of the smart, quick-witted person.
His birth mother was a druggie who lived on the streets. He arrived at us as an infant. We didn’t know once he got out of drug jail. That the word was legal pot was the way to go.
Since they couldn’t test for it. This was basically 10 years ago. We recently have seen him develop into alcohol problems with car wrecks and DUI.
He was always impulsive, but with drug use, it became so much more. He quit breathing years ago and had to be brought back.
Recently after smoking a lot of pot. He lives elsewhere. He no longer wants to get a job. He has fantasies about online jobs etc. I am others who know him. Think probably the back and forth of synthetic drug use. Coupled with alcohol use and now pot use.
He has altered his brain to where he no longer has regular use of his mind. I have friends who have grown children who were addicted to synthetic for years and went back to the pot. They cannot be reasoned with.
I was searching for stories related to this. If others had similar problems years later. And yes, lost all relationships and work situations, etc.
God help them. It breaks my heart as there is a child who loves him very much. Addiction breaks so many hearts in the circle around them.
