Today, my little brother was hospitalized and arrested for cocaine abuse. I was the one who let him try some of mine five years ago when he was only a junior in high school. MMT

Don't blame yourself--you never know what it is that will addict someone you love. I'm afraid of what will happen to my brother if I acknowledge that I tried pot and the like in high school. You never know.

Of course he should blame himself....he gave it to him. Cocaine is known to become extremely addictive even upon first usage, and it's not like that is a hidden fact.

The first thing I thought when I read this, was screw you. How could you destroy your little brother? Not to mention yourself.

You shouldn't have done that to him, or yourself. I'm sorry to hear about that, and I hope he's alright. You, too.

While I'll agree that it's OP's fault in part for letting their brother try it, we live in a world that treats addicts as victims. OP's brother is partially to blame for letting OP sucker him in to it. It's a lose/lose situation, and everyone is at fault. Including their parents for not teaching proper drug education to their children.
