For some its great and others it not so great to open that up and tell your loved ones
. If they are not or have never been addicts, they MIGHT not understand, BUT if you are close like Lukey said, hopefully they love you UNCONDITIONALLY!! Only you know your family, but either way, YOU need to make a plan to stop before it gets any worse, and more likely than not, it will get worse. Wishing you all the best!
