We have a lot of talks about alcoholism and offer advice on how to quit drinking, etc.
However, we don’t often discuss how alcolism affects family and friends. So if you are affected by someone else’s alcoholism, here’s a number for you. This is to Al-Anon, an organization that helps friends and family of alcoholics.
Al anon helped me. Unfortunately when I was going I was very sick and I thought people were acting and the government was influencing people and their reactions when I was there so I didn’t go long. I don’t really know if they were or if I was just imagining it. It felt real to me.
But long story short I don’t feel responsible anymore. That helped me immensely.
