Old or new hollow pen

I found a hollow pen the other day with brown resin in it.  It smells.  My son is a heroin addict and visited 2 years ago and again last month. Is there any way to determine how old this is?

There is hope

i just wanted to say hi, I haven't been on for a while, I joined this site in 2009 I think, my daughter at that time was a hopeless IV heroin addict on her way to an early grave,  almost 8 years later she is about to graduate from New England college of Law. She also has a job lined up clerking for a judge after the bar exam. She works very hard to maintain her sobriety and advocates for this horrible disease, I was as lost as a parent as she was an addict. Back then, there was no hope, so I thought, I'm living proof, and here to tell you all no matter how far you have fallen, recovery is possible and people in recovery are everywhere just waiting to help.

Recovering from meth
Today makes 51 days that I have been officially clean. Meth was my last drug Of choice before deciding I had to make a change. My body is still feeling extremely out of whack and I'm hoping to find another woman that has gone through this that might be able to help me out with some of my questions and just someone to add to my support system.

My meth addicted husband says he wants a divorce

My husband, age 38, and I have been married for almost 15 years and have two wonder children (12 and 14, also special needs). We have a beautiful home, nice cars, a comfortable savings account, he has a very good job that pays around 150,000 a year. The downfall in his line of work is that it takes him away from home weeks at a time. Five days ago, I discovered his drug stash and he told me (only because I held the drug hostage away from the house) that it was meth. Claims he doesn't have a problem, that he's used drugs for years, he has a good job, etc. He left and went back to work then and I don't expect for him to come home again for another 3 to 4 weeks. Since he has been gone, he's texted and called and becomes extremely irrate when I mention talking about the meth situation. Yet, he continues to call and answer when I call. He has since moved 30,000 from our savings, and used an additional 6,000 to pay on his credit card debt. I've seen his statement so I recognize the charges and they all appear normal. I told his dad who told his older brother and they went to visit and talk with him on the fourth day after I found out. He was extremely upset, but managed to talk with them and denied having any problems that he could't handle. He is very angry with me for going to his dad and says he's tired of my snooping and meddling and wants a divorce. I love him very much, but I love the person he used to be, not the person he has become. My son, 12, says he hates him and he's not his dad. I've decided it is best if I take a step back and get out of his way. I am halfway through with my graduate degree, I have 1 1/2 years left. Should I expect him to follow through with the divorce? Should I get boxes and prepack the majority of his belongings? Or should I chalk it up to the drug and decide if I want to make a change in our lives or continue to live as we have done? Everything that I have read suggests that I should get out and not look back, but I haven't given up hope just yet. I'm not very good at tough love, but am desperately trying to just stay out of his way by not calling or texting or even answering all of his phone calls and texts. I suppose I have fears of abandonment and that I lack the strength to move on without him. What advice do you have for me and family?

Boyfriend Relapsed. How do I help him?

My Boyfriend had been clean for 8 months until a couple days ago when he relapsed. He is an amazing guy and treats me so well. I'm not ready to give up on him and leave him but I want him to realize that I am hurt and want him to get help, although I know he needs to want it. I have been ignoring his texts and calls all day after telling him I was hurt and needed some time, I dont want him to think that he can keep putting me through this and its going to be okay. But I also feel bad and want to be there for him, but I'm not sure what the right thing to do is right now. He had taken some of my pain pills I had from a kidney stone I had gotten a couple weeks ago. I know that he has actual pain, and he says he didnt take them to get high but that doesnt make it right in my eyes at all. Im just so confused and struggling with it all and need some advice. Do I continue to not talk with him for a few more days at least to get a point across?
