I need help, you guys. I have a 25 year old brother who lives with my parents and i. He is drug addict, an alcoholic, an aggressive person, and among other things. I have lost my brother to drugs and alcohol and i......i cant take it anymore. He was taking cans to go recycle for drug money cause he doesnt have anymore to buy it himself. I stopped him but in the process he pushed me, splashed gutter water at me, and called me a ho. But what is even worse is he said he has "stopped talking to me a long time ago." I just want a family that doesnt fight anymore. I am so sick and tired of it all. I hate living with him and i'm afraid of being with him alone. I dont want it to be like this. I've never had a close relationship to my brother and it makes me incredible upset. He has had so many hardships in his life but he doesnt want help and he wont get help. His friend (even tho he was a drug addict too) died cause of a drug related incident, he has had testicular cancer which is making him self conscious, and he was a father at the age of 16, and now the girl he once loved insults him and tells their child to not hug or kiss his daddy.......He needs help but i dont think my parents know how. My parents said he was suppose to get couciling after a previous incident but they never went though with it. He seems to get away with everything. I am worn out from getting this off of my chest so im just hoping one of you sensible kind chicken lovers can help me. Im really at a loss since i have no power in the household......i just dont know what to do.
