pete's trip and everyone else,
no, no, dont ever use those over the counter drug kits, they are useless. I had a friend (not really a friend actually, just someone in one of my classes)that lost her daughter to her parents cause of drugs, and she has been trying for a year to get her daughter back, and a few months ago her mother accused her of doing drugs and gave her one of those at home drug kits and it said she was positive for drugs, well she paid several hundred dollars to get a hair follical test done, and those can tell how much drugs you've done for the past 6 months or so (they're one of the most reliable drug tests besides fingernail tests cause you cant mask it up with anything like people can do with urine tests), and it came back negative, saying she hasnt done drugs in a while and rubbed it in her mom's face. Always get it done at a lab, even if you have to pay out of pocket, it may cost quite a bit more, but it's worth it to get the truth, and also those at home drug tests will give the wrong results after so many minutes anyways, they are very useless, ask any perfessional that knows about
drug use, they will tell you also. And I'm sure anyone would feel aweful to accuse someone of doing drugs when in fact they where clean, I know cause when I was younger my parents always accused me when in fact I NEVER did anything, my brother who they thought was so wonderful was the one who drank all the time and did illegal drugs, it really made me severely depressed cause I never did anything to make my parents think that, they just thought so cause I slept all the time when in fact I did cause my chronic pain and fibro started when I was 14. And til this day I never really forgave them, it still haunts me.

Sorry folks, I was unaware of any problems w/ those drug tests! This is going back about 5 years now but I must have bought about 15 of them. Unfortunately they always came back positive but he always admitted being dirty after taking the test! So I can't say about false positive readings when the kid is clean!! Sam, I wasn't trying to mislead you. Even an expensive test is better than a dead kid!
Just trying to help!

As to the advise about giving him a drug test, That was brought up at the meeting and we decide not to do any drug testing unless the situation calls for it, he has never done anything like this before and I am going to trust him on this, however he knows that drug testing is an option and hopefully he will not give me any reason to go down that path. My son has already lost a lot of my trust and he knows that, I believe that he wants to have that trust back and he knows that he is going to have to earn that trust, that I am not just going to give it blindly anymore. To be honest with all of you I believe that my losing trust in him has hurt him the most.
tying to make it one day at a time....corney right
