    Thanks SoFla

    I'd already thought of that one. She may very well be protecting herself from what I'm going through right now. There is much more to the "rest of the story" on her, though. Too enormous to go into here, but trust me, she IS selfish - gets it honest from her mother's side I think - maybe even from HIM (my brother).

    Anyway, I will try to attend those meetings ASAP.

    Thanks for your input. I do appreciate it very much.

      There is always the "rest of the story." But only those who live in the house with the substance abuser really knows the whole story. There are members of my family who blame my brother's ex for his substance abuse. His daughters' have been given blame, too.

      I've attended many meetings, and look at it differently. When it is all boiled down, only my brother was responsible for his alcohol comsumption. I have great respect for my nieces for becoming the strong women that they are, overcoming great odds.

      Get to some meetings, Vickie. Keep in touch.
