Family conflict

Extracts from this document...


Family conflict I never thought my younger brother Tom would get involved in drugs. He is only fourteen and he is mixing with the wrong crowd. My name is Phil and I have never done anything remotely like that I wouldn't dream of it I am seventeen and Id like to think I'm mature enough to never do anything even half as stupid as drugs. I've told him several times that he's wasting his life. The thing that really gets to me the most is that most weekends he staggers in drugged up to the eyeballs in the early hours of the morning. He says it's depression and that I don't understand but one thing I do understand is a fourteen year old boy should not be on a drugs rehabilitation course and sleeping in gutters before he's even eligible to leave school. His friends are partly to blame. ...read more.


My parents were still at it, it was getting louder and louder and I heard a door slam. I think that was my dad, this is usually the way they finish their arguments. I was starting to get a bit concerned about where Tom had got up to this time so I threw on my clothes and rushed in to the next room to ask my mum what exactly was going on here. I was horrified to find my mum huddled up in the corner of the room. I asked her where dad had gone to which she replied with he's gone and he's not coming back. I swung the door out of my way and ran towards the car in a desperate attempt to save my family although it probably wasn't worth saving. I smashed the door of the hinges and ran outside hoping that Id fall over and knock my head and wake up as this being a very bad dream but reality is never that nice. ...read more.


It made me sick to say those words and what made it a whole lot worse was he actually didn't look bothered by it all. I said to him you may not be bothered but mum and I are. Mum screamed for him to get out and she also said that she hated him and didn't want to see him again. Tom was actually affected by what mum had said and it caused him to storm off upstairs I heard the slam of his door and to be honest I wasn't looking forward to the sound of it opening again. I staggered off upstairs and sat on my bed. I was in despair I rested my head in my lap and closed my eyes hoping it would all go away. I could still hear crying coming from downstairs I wanted to go and check if she was alright but I couldn't bring myself to prise my head from my lap and go downstairs. As far as I was concerned, my life was over. By Lewis Taylor ...read more.
