My younger brother is an alcoholic. Each time my Mother and I feel he's been at rock bottom he goes even further down. His drinking is out of control, he's basically been unemployeed for almost 2yrs (working for cash occasionally as a laborer). It just seems to get worse and worse and my Mom, 81yrs old, just can't handle it any more. My father was an alcoholic and died 37years ago at age 46. I try to take as much of the burden off of my Mom but it's beginning to affect me physically also. We tried Al-anon but it wasn't for us.
