Brendan,

For starters you say:
So far only my bank balance is feeling the effects and health to a lesser extent.

You are not writing because of your bank balance, you are reaching out for help regarding drinking and in turn IS YOUR HEALTH!!

The big one though is YOU and you ONLY can acknowledge you have a probem.
It is the first step of 12.

You say you come from a long line of drinkers and this is sad however you must understand that you can't tell them what to do and must focus on what YOU must do.

Are you tired of falling Brendon? If so look at yourself, you are a good person and you get what you give so stand up and be counted. You deserve better than this!!!

Today is your lucky day Brendon, you have found this board.
Embrace it, share your story and get things off YOUR chest.
There are wonderful people here ready to reach out and help you into sobriety.
I know it's hard to have family sucking booze all the time but look after number one and thats you.

Come back and share and I also would love for you to listen to HELEN!!
She is an angel on this board...Don't just hear her words, listen to them. They are magic so sponge them in to make the magic work on you.

You are not alone :)

Kerri
