There is nothing wrong with this sentence, but a part of me still feels like it's a tad bit harsh.
I believe him when he says he wants to get off those drugs. He was a hell of a DT, 4-3 DE, 3-4, imo, btw-
I have some experience in these matters.
I've never done any drugs with the exception of alcohol in my life. Never even smoked a joint.
My youngest son did. He went from pot all the way to oxycontin. He asked me for help when he got to the oxy. My wife and I gave him all the help humanly possible, including me dedicating my life to getting him off it.
No exaggeration, whatsoever. He went to in-patient care, out-patient care, NA, had a great sponsor, got a job, went to jail for his past transgressions, got to work-release, had me drive him to/from all of it, etc.
Heroin was cheaper, and his probation officer thought he was re-using. Night before his probation officer was planning to test him, he decided to OD on heroin.
His "tolerance" was gone, but apparently, didn't know/believe that.
My wife and I buried him a year and a half ago. His name was Bryce, and he really was a good kid.
He dealt drugs- pot, mostly, these things get complicated... He didn't even need the money. He was not poor.
My wife and I rolled up to to the police and coroner that day. We were just looking for him. Your imagination isn't good enough to conceptualize what that did to my wife.
I'm no parent apologist, btw-- I just have to see every situation, nowadays.
That is a tragic story and your family has my condolences. While I hate the packers with every ounce of fiber in my body it breaks my heart to see a young man with so much talent throw it all away. I hope at some point he figures it out and does the right thing.
