Stay strong, you are doing the right thing, and I will keep praying for you and for him as well.

Stacy, I can only add my sympathy and support to all the others listed above this post. Some people have to learn about life through making mistakes. Maybe he is one of those. He will find his own "wake-up" call one day but it won't be from you guys but from a stranger most likely. My ex is very like your son. It took him over ten years to realise how badly he treated me while we were together but has since apologised to me. He has battled drugs and alcohol for years. He still does but at least stays away from the serious stuff. He has worked out many things for himself but still has a long way to go. From your posts, your son sounds a lot more sensible than my ex, so I have great hopes for your son's future. Stay strong and look to the future.
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

teh ties are broken
I'd like to think they are not broken. Unravelled, yes, but sometimes they can be mended with time. As Middie said, he's young, so I have hope for him also.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

stay strong tg. we're here for you anytime you need it.

many of us guys have gone through those really dumb stages early in life, and somehow made it through. some people only learn by making mistakes. believe me, i know.

what uncle bob said was right; just be ready to acept him and love him again as soon as he's ready or able..
in nomine patri, et fili, et spiritus sancti.
beidh ar la linn.
wisdom is often in short supply within ones' ego.

I am so sorry for what you are going through and the pain you are feeling. You are doing the right things, Now keep praying and keep the arms open for when he wants to come back and rebuild his relationship. I did a study on the Prodigal Son recently and can see a lot that is similar, model yourself on the Father and look out for his return and welcome him back when it happens.

Lots of love Ray
