4.0 out of 5 stars Take the First Step--Read This Book, December 2, 1999
This review is from: Don't Let Your Kids Kill You: A Guide for Parents of Drug and Alcohol Addicted Children (Paperback)
"Don't Let Your Kids Kill You" is not written by a psychologist or a therapist. It is written by an ordinary parent who watched in horror as his two children were swept away by the insidious and powerful tide of drug abuse.
As any parent knows who has an alcholic or drug addicted teenager, the overwhelming feeling of helplessness can drive you to despair. This book clearly defines both your parental responsibility and your limits. It teaches you to "let go and let God"--one of the basic tenets of such support groups as Al-anon and Tough Love.
If you are frightened and confused by the self-destructive behavior of one of your children, if you do not know where to turn for help, read this book.
It just may be the first step back to a sane life in which you reassert your right to a happy and fulfilling existence even if your child continues to pursue the road to hell.

Kurt, you wrote "It just may be the first step back to a sane life in which you reassert your right to a happy and fulfilling existence even if your child continues to pursue the road to hell."

What an insightful and perfect way to put it. I hope this works for me. I am so tired of being blamed for my son's addiction and being told I "must have abused him in some way." I am desperately trying to find something that will help me deal with the grief of losing my relationship with him, and with the rest of my alcoholic and prescription drug-dependent family members. I'm at the point of losing my own mind. I've been referred to Al-Anon as well, which clearly states that it has to "start with me," and that I am the one that needs to change, and at this late stage in my life, I have to agree. After all, who else can I change but me?

I hope this book will help guide me on my way.

Dear God please show me The Way.
