New here

Hi I'm new here

I'm 18 and found this website last year but only just decided to sign up because things have gotten pretty bad again.

Dad's been addicted to drugs (cocaine), alcohol and gambling for as long as I can remember. Had some period of getting better but has fallen back into it all really hard this time.

I think I'll cope okay I've sort of learnt not to trust him over the years, the hardest part is seeing my mum struggle so hard It's heartbreaking.

I'll probably post a more detailed post elsewhere on here. I just thought I'd sign up because although I have friends who know about the situation and I can talk to them about it, I feel bad that they might not know what to say or feel awkward because they haven't really experienced anything similar.

So yeah, hi! :)
