Hello, Alcohol is something that was not part of my parents household, but it was part of my grandparents and my aunt. My aunt is probably an alcoholic and it has really contributed to a lot of problems for her and the family. My grandfather also may have been an alcoholic, but my grandparents hid this from the grandchildren. Seeing the problems these people in my family had really makes me feel compassion for those who are trapping in substance abuse or some level of alcoholism. I hope I can be of encouragement to others here.
