Family torn apart by alcohol addiction
Posted by Abi on 8 September 2017.
So my brother has been an alcoholic for a few years but recently this has stepped up. His wife an sons (age 8 and 10) have now left the family home. He has been into detox in the past an was doing well when he came out with meds to help him abstain from alcohol. However he stopped taking medication then relapsed an hasnt stopped since. Hes now drinking average of 1 litre of vodka a day an has recently spent time in ICU due so in intoxicated he was having heart issues. He keeps on making excuses an dont seem to understand he will die very shortly if this continues. I dont know what to do or where to turn? Please any advice x
