You have noticed the change in him over the years and you pray that it's nothing just a phase. Then the truth comes out and it's worse then you thought. You are crying begging him to stop to not do it anymore, but then he goes out again with his "friends" and you can tell. His eyes are dilated and he personality has completely changed. He went away for a little while to get help, you where relieved and as you were wishing him the best of luck, when he came home you prayed that it worked and he was over his horrible addiction. At first it seemed like all your prayers and wishes were answered, then everything falls apart again. Now he goes out everyday and you wish that you would go back and get more help, but most of all you prayed that he lived to see the error in his ways.
