The important thing is to remember that addiction is a disease. Living with someone who has this disease means three things:

  1. This is not your fault and you need to take care of yourself. Eat 3 meals a day. If need be find a healthy family with whom you can live. Do seek help.
  2. Make sure that you do not fall into the addiction trap. Remember you don’t have to drink or take drugs. You may have inherited the sensitivity to addiction.

3. If you can’t afford to buy the book, For Teenagers Living With A Parent Who Abuses Alcohol/Drugs, ask your library to get the book. You have the right to a public library card and the right to ask the library to buy any book you need or to get it through another library. The book answers a lot of questions you may have and has a great resource chapter which tells you were to get help.

You are an important person. Take good care of yourself.
