Get support following a drug or alcohol related death

My boyfriend died a week ago he was alone and wasn’t found for a few days. I had tried to help him for years but he just couldn’t stop drinking. I hadn’t spoken to him for a few weeks as he could be quite abusive when he was drunk. I feel so guilty and heartbroken.

So sorry for your loss. It's so hard to lose a loved one. Allow yourself to grieve no matter what anyone says, but take care of yourself too.

Hi Mony

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. You shouldn't feel guilty, I'm sure while you were together you did your best to help him.

Unfortunately when the addiction takes over their lives, it totally consumes them. It turns them into people we don't recognise, and they treat those who are closest to them, the worst unfortunately They have to be mentally and emotionally strong to fight it and so do the partners or families.

He was a tormented soul who is now at peace. It's just very sad for those left behind.

I hope you get the help and support you need at this difficult time.

Take care Mony,

Lx ❤
