Hi Red
Of course you will be putting your daughter’s 18th first but the thoughts of the group will be with you.
Saying ‘no’ is the hardest thing but if you follow it through and keep saying yes a CG will take you all the way down with him. Imagine you cannot give him any money because that is the way it would be in the end.
The most precious words I ever heard, having at last stood my ground and seen my CG accept his addiction was ‘thank you’ and that came only after I stopped enabling him thus allowing him the chance to hurt enough. It’s not what a mother expects to ever have to do and I am so sorry to hear you are going through this pain.
I hope you have a happy time with your daughter, enjoying time with her is important.
Speak soon
