I can not believe the mothers on here who  defend using drugs as a parent.  I'm sorry not only is this selfish behavior, it's flat out immature!  When you decide to have a child you give up certain things in order to care of your child, properly. If your not willing to be a grown up and put your kids first then your not a parent.  You are a spoiled brat who puts their wants and desires before there children and does not think about the consequences of their actions.

Their is no excuse good enough to use drugs or abuse alcohol while caring for your children.  You not only endanger your childrens lives you do real harm to them emotionally.  This is neglect!

After all when your to high to  feed them, bathe them, play with them, or notice they've been wearing the same diaper for hours,  then what?  When your to high or drunk to think clearly who makes decisions?  Who is watching your children?  Don't say "It doesn't affect me" because we all know that is a load of manure. If it doesn't do anything for you why do you keep on doing it?  We can all justify our actions and make ourselves believe our actions don't affect anyone else, but at the end of the day that's just not true!  It's  denial!

Maybe so far this seems to be harmless but what about in ten years when your child hates you because they remember you being high and not taking care of them. They remember being embarrassed by you, cleaning up after you, or not being able to depend on you!  Worse than that how about when someone else sees your behavior and now you have CPS or the Cops at your door?  What happens when you get caught? 

Are your  desires to be high or drunk worth risking any of this?  If so I pray you wake up quickly before it's too late!   If not then stop or get help!

ITA. A lot of parents have the defense of "well I don't do it around my kids". The way I see it, every time you go to drink or smoke or shoot up or whatever, you're choosing to abandon your child for a selfish, disgusting habit. Doing it around the kids is far worse. But that doesn't change the fact that doing it at all is still terrible.
