I am sorry that you have gone through all of this. I thank you very much for your advise. I have to realize that I can't help her and honestly at 72 I don't see her ever getting off this stuff. Every time the phone rings I think it is going to be the dreaded call.

I am very proud of you for realizing at such a young age that drinking wasn't the way to go. This is such a difficult situation to deal with and for you to have so many family members who are addicts I can't imagine what you must be going through.

I am lucky that my mothers addiction started when I was an adult. Unfortunately her grandchildren have grown up with their grandmother being an addict. I worry about them and how it will effect them.

I had a strange upbringing where my mother was very self involved and usually put her interests first. I am used to that. My sister and I learned early on that the only person we could really count on was each other. We are very close now because of that.

Again thank you.
