need help for my mom

Posted by harriet on 7 July 2014.

My dad died 6 years ago and ever since my mom has been an alcoholic, I have tried to get her to accept the problem and get help many times but she won't. Last night I came home to find her lying on the sofa with sick all over herself, I thought she had died and it was a real turning point for me, I can't keep going on like this but I don't know how I can help her now


sad and tired

Your mum has not got over her grief, she is using alcohol as a crutch. See if you can get her to see a Dr, she needs some help to recover. Also try alcoholics anonymous, I believe they can offer support for family members or can point you in the right direction. You don't say your age but have you a Nan or aunt you can speak too. Don't struggle alone, you can always come back here. Good luck xx
