Are my feelings about my loved one’s problem normal?

April 6, 2018

When a family member or close friend is abusing drugs or alcohol, it can be extremely difficult to cope. You may feel guilty, as though you are in some way responsible for their problem. Remind yourself that you are not, even if your loved one lashes out and blames you.

You may also feel angry, frustrated or helpless. Your attempts to help your loved one may seem doomed to failure. If the problem is severely affecting your mood, you may want to talk to a doctor or a counsellor, or join a support group. Family and friends of addicts often suffer deeply, and it can be reassuring to realise that you are not alone.
