We are back with our weekly updates from our in house agony aunt ‘Aunty Fabulous’ and hear some of the questions she has been asked, it was a great to hear how, ‘Aunty Fabulous’ tackled these obstacles.

Question : Dear agony aunt, I have found out that my brother is an alcoholic. It is ruining his life, he cannot hold down a job, or a relationship and he ends up drinking all the time. This causes him to not be present at a lot of family events, which is upsetting for everyone involved. I want to offer some words of wisdom as his older sister, but I do not want to come across as patronising.

Any tips ?

I am so sorry to hear your brother is an alcoholic.
I know how upsetting this is for you and your family and how much you want to help him especially as you are his older sister and want to also protect him.
There are different places your brother can go for help including Alcoholics Anonymous where he will be supported by others who have been in the same situation and are in a position to help him.
Unless your brother can accept he is an alcoholic and wants to get help there is nothing you can do right now but let him know you are there for him to support him when he is ready to get help.
If your brother has been through troubled times he needs to work through this himself until he is ready for support.
Perhaps you can give him some leaflets and a telephone number to call when if feels ready.
Tell him
How much you love him and want to help and be there for him.
It sounds like he may be in turmoil and is crying out for help but doesn’t know what to do.
I am suggest you contact a group to help and support you so that you are better equipped to deal with his situation.
The Al-non group have people you can talk to https://www.verywell.com/information-for-families-of-alcoholics-63317
Here is a website with links to different sources that can help you:
Take care and I hope you find the support you need as a family.
The great thing is he has you there to help him take his first steps to forward to recovery when he is ready.
