"When they are exhausted and dope sick with nowhere to go they come home for awhile if you let them. They come home just long enough to regain their strength then it is right back out the door again. If you know this and choose to let him back in that is your decision. I just want to point out that this is a pattern that often occurred at my house and I see it at yours."
I see it at my house too and I've even told myself "never again!" but let him in. Let's hope this time I finally learn. Yesterday I deep cleaned my room - dusted, scrubbed, washed, etc. etc. etc. every item in there is spotless and shiny clean. I think I was subconsciously "cleaning Keven out of my life" not in a mean way, but some sort of symbolic way. Or...maybe I just felt like cleaning, I am a bit obsessive about it.
He texted me for a phone number today, said he's sober and is going into sober living tonight. I gave him the number and said good luck.
Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara
