I haven't reached out to anyone yet. Now I'm at a loss of what to do next.
A few months ago my son told me he is an alcoholic. He is 24 and lives with me.
He said he wants to give up. He tries. In the past he told me he had attended meetings, spoke to sponsors, opened up to friends and I have helped and supported him as much as I can. I've given encouragement, reassurance, sat with him whilst he cries and he is very emotional.
It has taken a major toll on me too and I was off work for a couple of months, trying to help him and myself (mentally).
I have read a lot and understand it isn't my fault.
He says he wants to give up, be a better person, that he doesn't want to feel this way anymore, that he will speak to the GP and support groups and then doesn't. He also says he cannot do it. He still drinks most days. I know he needs to also help himself.
He seems to like telling me what he knows I want to hear and then doesn't do it.
I don't believe what he tells me anymore.
He keeps threatening suicide and last night put a message out on Facebook that he has had enough.
I really don't feel I can deal with this anymore.
Any support will be much appreciated.
