I walked into my sons room tonight and caught him out smoking marijuana. I was really upset as his bedroom is right next to his younger brother’s bedroom. He knows my views on drug taking as I grew up in a very dysfunctional family. I am really worried as my brother smoked marijuana and it had a very detrimental effect on his life. I am scared and not sure what my next step is.

Hey there @Mumofboys_23 and welcome to ReachOut
I'm sorry to hear that this has happened, it's hard to see someone we love do drugs, especially when you've had bad experiences in the past. It's okay to be scared, it shows that you care about your son to be worried about him. Have you had a chance to speak to your son since you caught him?
It's hard to know what the next steps may be. I was wondering, do you have other supports such as a counselor, psychologist or trusted friend/family member that you can talk to about all this? It's important to take care of ourselves while we're going through a tough time. What do you think?
