Sober Mom, scared for my children
I'm Diane, an alcoholic. I have 5 children, 3 grown adults in their early 20's and 2 under 10. I have 4 years clean, thanks to the grace of a loving God. My concern is not for my young children as they have the opportunity to be raised by me now healthy, but it is for my older children who are making bad choices.
It is what they learned, I imagine. One, chooses bad relationships, another, chooses drugs & is now pregnant, and one has two children and is 20 and stuggling through life without support as she wants it that way.
I want to know how I could undo the damage, I spent 16 years trying to get out of my head, and I don't want to pass that on to my children. Is it too late, I have already made amends to them and they love the new me, what can I do?
