Brother of an addict

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to introduce myself to you all. While I personally have been spared from alcohol addiction, several of my friends and my younger brother have not. This has caused me and our parents considerable pain.

I joined this forum because I want to understand the nature of the problem better, as well as support everyone in their battle to overcome their addiction.

I'm hoping to learn more here so that I can help those around me more effectively going forward.

Thanks for all the positive energy and honesty on these forums.
