    There is help in the rooms of Nar-Anon Family Groups. I would not be sane, or even alive if I had not crawled into the rooms where mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, grandchildren and loving friends gathered to share their experience strength and hope. i hope those who are suffering, wondering what to do, will find a meeting near them. www.nar-anon.org has listings for everywhere.
    There is hope.

      Hello, and welcome. Yes, there is hope. Shared experiences keep one strong. Keep writing.

      Nar-Anon and Al-Anon Family Groups are an absolute sanity saver for friends and family of addicts and alcoholics.  An yes they do suffer from addiction/alcoholism too and they therefore need help.  Just being able to gather and talk with people who have been through what you are going through is a blessing and healing.
