My brother has been struggling with a drug addiction for the last five years. He always convinces everyone he wants to get help and go to rehab, but when it comes down to it, he never follows through, or ends up relapsing within months. When does it get to a point, that you tell him you're done and shut him out of your life? The last couple of months my brother has been on the methadone maintenance program. He has been doing really well and I thought this time was going to be different. He has been to rehab 3 times and each time he has relapsed within months of returning. Today we found out he has been doing cocaine while taking the methadone. He has been kicked out of my parent’s house and is who knows where now. I should mention my brother is 22 years old. My brother has done so many hurtful things to both my family and I the last five years, some of them unforgiveable. First, while he was working for a family members business he stole over 5,000 dollars slowly over a couple of months. The business almost went bankrupt, and he to this day has never paid them back. That’s not even the tip of the iceberg - he has stolen so much from me and my family, both money and personal items to sell. He always blames his drug habits on stressful events, such as our grandpa dying, or me being in a car accident. He never takes responsibility for his actions which is so frustrating. The worst part is the time I had to convince him to take the knife away from his throat. He has threatened to kill himself multiple times, and as his sister i am always the one to hear the threats. I worry every minute about getting his suicidal text messages, and although he has never fully gone through with it – it’s not something I can’t take seriously. I try hard to be strong for my mom and dad, but they do not know half the things i have been through. I was the one there to check on him when he would get home from partying to make sure he was still breathing, i was the one that had to calm him down when he was so high on acid he didn’t know what was happening. I feel like he only cares about himself, and even though he has done all these terrible things, i am still there for him. How do i let go and stop worrying about him? When do i say it’s enough and cut him out of my life? I always wondered how families could allow their family members to live on the streets and be drug addicts, but now i understand there is only so much one can do, before they become completely broken and unable to deal with it. Can someone please shine their thoughts on my situation? I'm so lost.
