able to talk or take care of her children sometimes 5 or 6 days messed

The court has tested her for illegal drugs before and she
failed the test and they put her in jail over night and sent her home.
They have found her in the woods unable to function knocked out!!!!

says he has found as many as 200 or more pills in their room hidden.
She is getting her pills from a doctor in Puerto Rico ???? They send it
to another place closer to the house and then UPS ships it right to the
house when my brother is not home.


have called the police and they come out when she is found and say they
can’t do anything because it is not an illegal drug!!!!! Every
ambulance that has came out will take her sometimes to the hospital and
she is sent home.

She has gone to rehab clinics and still not
helping any ideas please help. my brother said she smokes and burns
holes in everything. She has been found in the floor all the time

Something Has To Give

by: Ned Wicker

She has a brain disease, which causes her to make
bad choices and has severely impaired her ability to make proper
decisions about her life as a wife, and member of society.

will continue to deny her problem. She will blame your brother, belittle your bother and
as time goes by, he will no longer be important to her. If
her drug use is allowed to continue, their marriage will surely end.
Don’t be surprised if she divorces him, because he’s inadequate.

many husbands have suffered through this scenario. It’s almost like a
script, a kind of dance that those with the disease have to go through.
Because she cannot make good choices, because she is the one with the
disease, because she is in denial, she must lay all of the blame
elsewhere. That means him. There is hope.

He should call
Al-anon and tell them his story. The organization is designed to help husbands who are trying to hold their families together and
get help for their addicted wife.

Call Al-anon and get some support.

My dad is an alcoholic?

Hi I am a 22 year old girl who has a dad that is an alcoholic. He has
been drinking ever since I’ve been alive and he is now breaking down and
realizing his problem.

Only thing is he doesn’t have enough
money or insurance, neither do I. The other night he told me he didn’t
drink all day or night and he was going through horrible withdraws.

I’m scared for him. And don’t really know what to do. What are the chances of cold turkey? Is that his only option.

Desperate help!

Please respond!

Alcohol Withdrawal is Difficult

by: Ned Wicker

Alcohol withdrawal is very difficult and sometimes FATAL, so
your dad MUST seek medical help. A trip to the emergency room might be
in order. Once he is out and through detoxification, he can turn to
Alcoholics Anonymous for help.

He should go to meetings, get a
sponsor and start working the 12 Step program. It doesn’t cost any
money, but if he works the program, it will work, as it has for millions
of people over the last 70 years.

You also can use some
support, so I recommend you turn to Al-anon, an organization dedicated
to helping daughters just like you. You need to learn how to help him.

that alcoholism is a brain disease, so your father doesn’t have
complete control over his drinking. The disease is powerful, which is
why a program for him is necessary to rebuild his life and get back on
the right path. You can play a huge part in that.

him to seek medical help, then call AA and get him to go to meetings
daily, “90 meetings in 90” days is often the most helpful.
