    My Brother Is An Alcoholic

    My Brother is an Alcoholic. It's taken me a very long time to be able to actually admit it and to say it out loud. I am terrified. I have seen him decline in every possible way and he is only 44 years of age. He has let go of his appearance, his home (if continued, his house...

    He molested me during childhood (he didn't

    drink back then) and my mother knew. I'm so sick of living at home...I don't even like looking at him and I can't stand that my parents allow him to live here and get plastered every night and he constantly stumbles into the bathroom next to my room and sometimes ****** all over...

    Oh, Brother.

    I used to think it was the most ridiculous thing in the world. He was 13 or 14 when I was born, so he's a lot older than I am. I remember when I was little he was always getting into a lot of problem with the law and with alcohol. When he was 13, he burnt my...

    My Brother Is An Alcoholic

    It all started when my mum and dad said they were divorcing. He was 18 and would drink occasionaly with friends. Now, he is 19 and drinking everyday. I often wondered if he was being honest when he said he was just bored and doing it for fun. But tonight, he came right out and...

    I'm a triplet and have two brothers.

    One is an alcoholic. They've both dealt with substance abuse since we were teenagers, one got sent away to a rehab wilderness program when we were 16 and the other when we were 17. I was the only one to complete 4 years and graduate from our high school with a diploma and they...

    My Alcoholic Brother

    I don't believe an alcoholic will ever stop drinking. It's impossible to believe. The brother I once knew and loved has turned into an unrecognizable human being. A vicious, selfish person. He has betrayed our family and put an undeniable strain on our relationships. I almost...

    Arrested Again...

    Since my brother is fourteen years older, I lived at home while he was "grown up" living with his wife and kids. There was a good stretch of about two months where the phone would ring between 2am and 6am at least once a week. More often than not, my mom would come in...

    I'd Love to See Him Get Better

    My brother and I are only a year and 10 months apart so we were like twins growing up.  We were always together like two peas in a pod.  Well there were times where we would fight like cats and dogs but we looked after each other. We grew up in an abusive and violent...

    Show Me the Way to the Next Whiskey Bar

    Drowning yourself in a bottle, you’re thoughts disappearing with every drop into you’re throat. Seeing you’re soul vanish beneath my eyes as you’re so focused on everything and anything that has to do with booze. Watching my own brother live his life as if...

    To My Lost Brother

    I think that I was around ten, you were a teenager, you started drinking then. It increased slowly year after year, memories gone with each drink of beer. I only remember the time you spent away from home, In a drunken stupor you would roam. Memories depleted, or never existed...
