Help for my Brother by sisterindistressGoing through something similar. Early stages. My brother is 22 and for the past 3 year he has slowly become more dependent on alcohol and that has now moved to drug abuse and unsustained work. He has sought support through AA, and will say he is aware he is addicted to alcohol and drugs but will constantly keep taking them after short hourly bursts of what feels like some soberness. My parents are distraut and feel helpless calling NHS and trying to find a solution to help support him. Meanwhile he has now kept us all awake at crazy hours for the last three weeks. I am exhausted and also feeling a little helpless. I am getting married this year and feel super selfish about not wanting him at the wedding, but I just want my brother back. Could also do with some support, so love the advice to keep at it and do things for taking care of me. One of those being moving to my fiancée's family home for a bit whilst my parents and brother sort a few bits out, I just don't know how long that will have to be.
