I WRITE in reply to the letter “alcoholics need help”.
Alcoholics Anonymous are the only people who understand as they are all alcoholics themselves, they know what people are going through when they drink and how they can recover.
It’s not an easy path, but when they are struggling they have a sponsor they can ring.
It’s all in secret and there is no judgement if they fall off the wagon, AA are always there to help them.
I was the wife of an alcoholic for 15 years, it isn’t only those drink who suffer but their families as well.
I went everywhere for help and found out about Al Anon, set up to advise and help the families of alcoholics.
You have to keep trying.
