Drink & drug sis­ter needs help

Sunday Mirror - - PUZZLES -

She is clearly self-med­i­cat­ing her lone­li­ness and de­pres­sion with al­co­hol and drugs, and needs pro­fes­sional help. But she may not yet be what we think of as an ad­dict. Spell out the dan­gers to her. You can’t force her to get help but you can try to get her to see rea­son. Get some prac­ti­cal ad­vice at ad­dac­tion.org.uk – a spe­cial­ist char­ity. Get her to go to her GP to ad­dress prob­a­ble de­pres­sion and to make con­tact with fam­ily clubs for sup­port. Bot­tom line: She is a mother and must start be­hav­ing re­spon­si­bly. Thank good­ness she has a sis­ter who cares.
