I have a younger brother that is nine years younger than me. He has been actively drinking since he turned 18. If the alcohol was readily available, he would find ways of obtaining it. Whether it be through friends or theft. He has had many run ins with the law due to his disease, that he has burned many a bridge. His family and friends have lost all trust, and respect. Even his wife is fed up with it, and she is the one that is helping him pay off his fines. The same laws he broke before he met her. He has been in and out of rehab at least twice, and even did some outpatient treatment to. Because of this problem, he has serious health issues. Does that stop him? No, he knows no other way to deal with his problems. I keep praying that things will improve, but he is the one that has to really want it. I just hope, for his sake, he will see alcohol for what it really is.
