Hi all new to the site, came across it while browsing online as you do. My father was an alcoholic/dependant and I've been living with it for as long as I can remember. He lost his battle and has sadly passed away. All I can think about is the arguments and the tough love that I tried when all else failed and dealing with a little guilt I have inside me telling me I shouldve tried something else and not gave up. It's always in the back of my mind. I am a strong person, I've had to be, but I'm just confused about how to deal with it. I want to help other people that are in the situation that I was in thinking they will learn from my experience and the same time helping myself deal with what's on my mind. That's just a short reason to why I decided to join and will continue to post and reply as much as I can. If anyone in a similar situation wants to talk please feel free to message, I'm not sure exactly how this works but I'm here to help and share my experience.
