Hi I have been a heavey drinker for years and back in 11th Sept 17 I stopped and still abstaining. Probably what frightened me to stop was my son's mother being diagnosed with cirrhosis finding a letter from my nearly 21 year old son saying various things about me and his mother being basically piss heads and his life was a mess, not what you want to read from a 20year old young man. The reason for this thread is I need help.
My Ex's wife has been diagnosed with cirrhosis after attending a fibroscan she was told if she drank she will be dead in 12 months. Well 6 months in she is still drinking. Her current partner is feeding her habit. My son is at his wits end and ask me to help, how can I help when ive just managed to help myself. To be honest I don't no where to start. Is there groups, people, health professionals who we could speak to for good and not patronising advice. Also my son's mother suffers from depression and panic attacks and is on medication for this, also she as now developed epilepsy brought on by drinking.
Any advice will be very much appreciated
