Do you and your husband have full custody of your step son? Are you on good terms with his bio mom?

I was wondering the same things.

 Just a couplef questions?? How old is he? How many did he have? Whose did he say they were? Or why he was holding them? I ask because I have been down that road and just veered off of it, and it is a VERY scary place to be :(

  I would sit him down and talk with him, this is something that is really important and needs to be addressed.

He is 17 and last year did experiance a broken wrist he has expressed to me on numerous occasions how much he liked the pain pills and I tried to explain that he liked them because he was in pain. I only found one but he works 20 hours a week and only goes to school for 3 hours a day because he is a senior. He is broke the day he gets paid and cant even stay awake to eat dinner on most days. He claimed the pill belonged to his bf mom and that the other boy dropped it and he picked it up. However on the day I found it he got a call he simply said I am at home he went outside met a kid then sat in his car for 15 min then came in counted about 8 dollars and said his friend owed him money then went to bed for 6 hours. I want to help but not sure if I even can without his Dad

I think you should keep trying to talk to your husband until he listens!! This is serious business and he needs to not take it so lightly!!

It is illegal without a prescription. Your dh needs to get his head out of the sand. Sounds like he is addicted if he can't stay awake.

There are huge red flags that need to be addressed immediately. This definitely sounds like he has a dependency. The sooner he gets help, the better.
