im 19yrs old, i have a 21yr old brother who has moved out so i live with my 2 younger sister 18yrs and 11yrs and my mum who is an alcholic. my mum has drank ever since i remember but since her marriage broke down 5yrs ago its got worse! she has attempted suicide 3 times, after each she has just been let out of hospital and thats it! with no family to support us basically its just me and my sisters left to cope with this alone! i try not to let it affect me because i have my sisters to look after but im beginning to get REALLY depressed, and angry that we have never been considered, never been offered help or support. although im older now, were expected to know what were suppose to do, how were suppose to handle the fact that our mother is killing her self!

I have just realised that I am putting my health at risk, through the amount of alcohol I drink. I work with Health Workers and people in this sort of proffession and because of this I am unable to attend anywhere for help without fear of people Knowing.

I am a bipolar alcoholic. Bad combination? Possibly… I am having, currently, problems controlling both. If I can just get my bipolarism (is that a word?) under control, I would be a little better off. And, obviously, I am here for some help with my alcoholism.

this horrendous afflication has brought on many other problems both physyically and mentally, at most times i feel alinated as i have had to change my life so much, i have been clean now 1 1/2 years and i feel and believe alcohol is not an issue any more, its changing my life style which i struggle with. am hoping to chat to others in similar situations.

I formed a group called "Alcoholics". If you click on the groups tab above you should see it near the bottom of the list.

I am an alcoholic and in three weeks I will have 30 years sober.

I formed the group because there was not one, not because I want to be a moderator. If any of you care to join, please do.

If anyone wishes to be the moderator, even better.

I have only been coming to CarePlace regularly for a few days, so I am not known here, nor do I know many of you

Ed, Welcome to the group. I check it our every now and then. Thirty years! Good job - I salute you. A drinker my entire life, on and off, recently many stressors have erupted (first my husband of 20 years abandoned me, then a kind gentleman I fell in love with committed suicide because he had Parkinsons (long story) and I just returned from grief counseling for this latest crisis. MY name is Fran, 60, and I live in Schaumburg, IL…
