So I got some bad but not unexpected news over the weekend; sadly I just lost another cousin to alcoholism. Not even 50yrs old she looked 20 yrs older, weighted under 6 stone and wore clothes meant for children aged 11-12yrs. She would goes days without eating and was in constant physical and emotion pain which literally left her unable to function. She was one of 4 siblings and all are alcoholics her brother died a very painfull death last yr when his liver packed in.
Unfortunetly for the two remaining siblings the same fate awaits them and although we as a family have staged several interventions over the years it appears we are fighting a loosing battle.
I am aware that people have different opions in relation to addictions and addicts but I can assure you that my cousins got/get no pleasure from drinking alcohol it has ruined their lives, taken its toil on their appearance, destroyed their childrens lives and brought a horribly painful death to two of them.
Please can you remember margaret in your prayers today and also pray that the remaining two siblings anne and john get to grips with their demons before alcohol claims their lives too
