My mom.

Posted by Lay93 on 5 January 2017.

Hey guys. My mom has been an alcoholic for over 15 years. I started noticing it when i was just 11 years old. For years ive had to pick her up off the floor when she's had far too much, and she has also suffered with black puts and fitting. She doesnt mix with the right people and i try to talk to her about it but she pretends to listen to me. For years me and my family have offered our support and help but she keeps pushing us all away. Her attitude is also so disgusting and I'm fed up of it. As her daughter id love for her to get some help, but I'm not sure what else i can do. Any suggestions would be mich appreciated. Thank you!

Thank you for posting. Its really difficult that your mum doesn't want to get help but there is help out there for you. The Icarus Trust is a charity that supports the friends and families of addicts as we know how hard this can be. 
If you contact us we could signpost you to available help and you could talk through things with one of our 'Family Friends' who are experienced trained volunteers and would understand what you are going through.
