I suggest you give Al-Anon a try. It is a support group for families of alcoholics.

I don’t even know what to say about the stuff with your brother and Future Sister-In-Law, that’s awful! As far as the cell phone goes, why don’t you get on a plan with your FI? It seems kind of strange to me to still be on a family plan with your parents. Maybe that’s just me though. I currently have a pay as you go one and I use it as little as possible, I’ve saved quite a bit of money that way while wedding planning.

I am so sorry.

I’d second a support group. Don’t know if Al-anon is the right one for you, but you should look into the best one for you.

@SoonToBeeMrsD: I am so sorry that anyone has to go through this, especially during what should be their happiest moments in life.

I understand the fear of those late night phone calls because we know that it will lead to heart ache, frustration and a long sleepless night. While it may be heartless I sometimes have to turn the phone off and hope for the best to maintain my own sanity.

I am a religious person (not sure if you are) but God has helped me deal with all the let down and pain that comes with having a parent that is engulfed with an addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. I am a stronger person because of my faith the support of those around me to compensate for the lack of support that should come from my mother.

You may need to come to a place of peace by shutting those out that bring all the drama and pain. I had a very frank conversation with my mother and told her that if she choose to continue down her path I could not have a relationship with her. At this point our relationship is rocky at best because she continues to choose alcohol over her daugther.

You and your family are in my thoughts and I wish you all peace and happiness (and sanity!!!).
