My family and i have just found out that my brother was rapped over a period of 2 yrs when he was 8 he is now 21 and a complete mess. There is so much hurt in his life and his only purpose for waking up in the morning is to smoke his pot and yell at everyone around him.Iam so worried he will end his life as he does not find any happiness in life anymore.As his sister i ache to find the little brother i once had and want to help him in anyway i can but i dont know where to start or what to do anyadvise would be greatly appreciated.

Scot's right, get him to see a therapist, and if at all possible one that deals with sexual abuse. Quite possibly rape crisis centres will help and advise, most here are now dealing with men as well.
It's going to be hard,and he'll need support. Expect more yelling and hard times, but improvement is possible.
Be sure to look after yourself as well, you can't carry his load.
