  1. That sucks, I’m sorry. I know what alcoholism can do to people, having witnessed it first hand in my family. Unfortunately, I’ve had to distance myself from certain people, and it’s sad.


  2. Congrats on the promotion & welcome home!
    Sorry about the familial dramas. There are a couple of memebers of my family who have alcohol related issues & it isn’t nice seeing what’s happened to them over the years.


  3. I’m sorry your vacation was pretty much a big bowl of frosted crap. I’m an Adult Child of an Alcoholic; my father is a drunk. I’ve found that reading books about Adult Children is a good start. It’ll apply even if the alcoholic isn’t your parent. You could also try attending Al-Anon, which is a support group for friends and family members of alcoholics.
    For me, the hardest thing so far has been really understanding that I have no control over any of it except for how I react to it. I can choose to stay, watch it unfold, and keep getting sucked in to being the “responsible” one; or I can back away, wish him well, and let the chips fall where they may. Like Zannebee, I’ve chosen to back away.
