Does anyone have/ had a parent or parents that suffer/ed from an addiction to alcohol? or drugs? for the last year my mother has been suffering from it for close to 4 years now due to the death of her father and then her husband within 6 months of eachother.. and as her daughter i did my very best to help, with no results, i tried everything i was on my own at 18 years old with no help.., it ended up pushing me away from her.. i havent spoken to her in 2 years due to her getting ahold of me claiming she was clean and then leaving voicemails at 3 am drunk and high and calling me this that and the next thing..
my aunty from the states wants to intervene and try and convince her to move to jersey with her to help her get clean..
im at the time in my life 24 years old where i feel guilty i didnt try harder to help her but i also feel that a parent should not put that on their child...but the pain she feels must have really pushed her so far,
if there is anyone on here that can give me some words of advice, id appreciate it
