Hi I am new here. My brother is an alcoholic and it is hard. I have tried to help him I came to the point were I was done. He has gone through the depression and wanted to kill himself. And getting arrested. He is on probation for 2 public intoxication and a DUI and a hit and run. I helped him through all of that. Those charges he got arrested three times in two days for all of that crap. He is still drinking and just got arrested Sunday again for DUI and hit and run causing damage to private property. He called me upset and was talking about killing himself I told him that I was not able to help him to call someone who could. That was the hardest thing I ever had to do. Now that he can not drive he had small claims court that is a little over an hour away from here. I told him I could not take him that I am done helping him. He said that this had nothing to do with his drinking I said yeah it did because if he was not drunk he would remember to pay his bill and if he was not drinking he would have a car for him to drive himself. He has been calling here all night and day. I am not answering but he will leave a message telling me how disappointed he is in me. What do I do now. Thanks for listening. Sorry it is so long. I had to vent.
