Help my son is addicted to cola!
Hi everyone, I was hoping for some tips or strategies for managing my 25 year old intellectually disabled son;t coke consumption. He is so focussed on it, when he's getting his next one, whether there'll be any at Gran and Pop's house, etc. He's only just opened a bottle when he asks 'more shopping?' He's an adult now with his own money so I can;t really stop him going for the big bottle when we're at the shops, I couldn't stop him anyway as he is stronger than me (not that I'd try to physically restrain him). I have tried explaining about his health, too much will make him sick, the dentist says he musn't etc. I'm not seeking to eliminate, just strategies for lowering his consumption. It really is an addiction, but it is his main pleasure in life bless him.
