My son says he found ripped up brillo pads or steel wool pads in my husband's car. My husband who has been clean for 2 years. My son also says these are used as screens in crack pipes. I don't want to believe this, and honestly I don't know. Anyone here know if that's true? If it is, it's time for a drug test.

Yes it is true, Its called Chore boy steel wool pads and they use it for a screen in the pipe. Most definitely, i have found many and my son was on it for years. Also, long thin pcs of metal, to clean pipe, you will see that. Beware, your son is right. Pick the pcs up and show your husband. Good luck

(((jastypes))),

I'm sorry to say but I agree with smarter.

The best advice I can give is to get help for yourself (therapy, support group, etc) to deal with this in the most contructive/healthy way for YOURSELF.

Good luck, my thoughts are with you.

Love,
Lolli

I don't know anything about steel wool pads, but know plenty about addiction, loving an addict for 20 years (now ex-H but still seeing him-long story). I know the heart-wrenching disappointment that comes with relapse, so please keep posting.

Too many times I focused on his relapse and HIM instead of focusing on myself. Lolli is 100% right- get help (therapy, support group, etc) to deal with this in the most contructive/healthy way for YOURSELF.

I would certainly talk to him about it.. if he denies and is willing to go for a drug test- great. If not- you pretty much have your answer. Stay calm and set your boundaries. I have found screaming, crying, guilt-trips and all those hysterics help nothing.. just make it worse. My ex responds honestly ONLY when he feels 'safe' enough to share the truth with me.

Here if you need to talk..
