Guilt over alcoholic parent's death

I just joined this site in hopes of meeting a few people who are or have experienced what I am going through. In June 2011, my mom was hospitalized and died a week later. It turned out that her liver was so damaged from years of drinking that they weren't funcitoning and in turn, her kidneys failed. When she went into the hospital, she had sworn up and down that she was only drinking on the weekends and very little then.

A story to share and help everyone

Going back about 20 years, my family had everything; a nice house, great jobs, fantastic holidays and everything that goes with it. Then my Dad discovered whisky. When I was about 6, my parents divorced and my Dad moved out. One of the earliest memories I have is of him sleeping on my bedroom floor just days before he moved out.
