It is unfortunate however some people who are addicted to alcohol dont find help until it becomes too late and their health is at risk. Typically they don’t recognize they have a problem until its too late. Those who suffer the most are the people directly related to the alcoholic, the family. It is human nature to learn through other peoples tragedies, usually we recognize something in our life through what we see in others; it is because of this theory that I want to share a story with you.
Bill Kenny woke up one morning to find his 50 year old wife passed out in their bed. She didn’t have cancer or heart disease but was severely depressed as her children had recently moved away and she felt lonely and worthless.
Like many men, David was not a very good listener. Unfortunately he never recognized the fact that his wife was severly depressed and, in fact, had distanced himself from her. Because of these feelings Mrs Jones attempted to find comfort elsewhere, namely alcohol.
