My parents have given up on me. At least I think they have. My mom recently found out I smoke and that I drink when I'm by myself. They helped me get out of a situation which cost them thousands of dollars and I'm right back in that situation again. I've lied to her (thinking I was protecting her and covering my own ass) and she found out. She thinks I am going to end up like my birth mom (a crackhead who lost all her kids). I'm scared she's right. I can see the pain in her eyes and while it kills me, it also makes me numb inside. I just nod when she talks now, I don't even try and explain myself. Between losing faith in God, smoking, drinking, lying, etc. I wouldn't blame her if she gave up on me and walked away.
