Went thru 15 years of my daughter addicted to meth. She's clean and sober 7 years this Christmas. However, my grandson has developed a serious problem with alcohol and drugs. He's dropped out of his freshman year at college and has lost some serious weight. Can use all the outside help we can get so prayers and good thoughts are deeply appreciated.

    Prayer coming. Those situations can be extremely trying, and the good Lord is the only one who can pull people through.

    Good on your daughter for kicking the meth; that stuff is highly addictive.
    :angel2: Prayer for grandson to get the help he needs to kick the drugs/alcohol.
