I feel the confidence now to be able to share my experience of being a child of an alcoholic
Mum, your battle with alcoholism was a storm that tested me each day.
Everyone knew the situation. It was the unhidden secret.
The true impact of my parent’s alcoholism will never be known to me.
There’s freedom in speaking up and working through this.
This story I would say is a story of hope. One that I want to share to show to people.
I am the adult child of an alcoholic who I lost to her addiction in 2006.
As much as I tried to protect my son with every fibre of my being, I couldn’t fully protect him.
Addiction doesn’t just affect the addict. Addiction is a family illness.
