"Gungchang somehow I landed on this post and just wanted to express my belated condolences to your wife on her bereavement. The drink can be a terrible nightmare as your father-in-law's experience testifies - died alone. This happens everywhere in the world, a kind of universal experience for those who take it to excess, it isolates you and then it kills you. There's virtually no help available for local people either for what is otherwise a massively under-acknowledged problem. I hope next year is better for your missus. Best etc" Portnoy posted this on another thread and it was read by a friend of mine who asked me to post the following information about an open A.A.
