I have. My mother.
She ****ed up 5 sons.
I have no sympathy with any selfish alcoholic.
So shove it!!!
Since this thread has been bumped I have had the opportunity to read this reply to my earlier post.
I lost three close family members in ten years and alcohol played a part in each. Thanks a bunch. Not entirely sure what you want me to shove, or where, but thanks none the less.
