Family Confessions: My Sibling Is A Drug Addict
The content below was sourced from real posts on the Whisper app, the largest online community where people anonymously share real thoughts and feelings. Join the community to continue the conversation today. They say addiction is a family disease because it truly affects the entire family when one person is battling addiction. Seeing someone you love crumble as they battle their drug addiction is taxing to say the least. It's hard to watch and even harder when you realize that you can't control the situation. These people have brothers and sisters who are battling drug addiction. Their confessions are heartbreaking and brutally honest. May these stories remind you that help is possible and addiction truly affects more than the drug addict.

Addiction is the worst.

My parents were drug addicts, so my grandparents raised me and my older sister. My sister is now a drug addict. It’s very difficult to see her go down that awful path.

Scary.

I’m happy my sister got fired. I don’t want a thieving drug addict working anywhere near old people. They deserve better.

That is so heavy.

My mom might have cancer, my twin is suicidal, my brother is a druggie and my sister is an alcoholic. I have a lot of pressure on me to the the "normal" one..

Your life, your choice.

My mom says I’m a horrible person for telling my sister to stay out of my life. I’m sorry, but I’m 18 and don’t need a 30 year old drug addict in my life right now.

Thomas Landing, Delaware, US

The truth hurts.

Found out that my brother is a drug addict. Every time he has wanted to be alone or anything, it turns out he’s been getting high. I can’t believe this.

From:

So scary and so sad.

Sometimes I wish I could lock my sister up in a padded room. Not because I hate her, but because she's a heavy drug addict and in her third trimester. I just wish I could save her and her baby somehow
