DEAR DEIDRE: LIFE is hell thanks to my older brother’s drinking problem.
It started when he necked a bottle of vodka in one go at school and gave himself alcohol poisoning.
Get in touch with Deidre today
My team and I are working safely from home but we are here to help you as always.
He’s 19 and is abusive, verbally and physically, to the whole family.
I am a girl of 15 and can’t wait to leave home. I don’t feel safe here, let alone able to study.
My brother throws a tantrum if my parents refuse to drive him to buy alcohol.
He wouldn’t go when they sorted counselling for him but they say they can’t kick him out because he’s “their own”.
When I say I don’t feel safe, they just say: “I know.”
DEIDRE SAYS: This is so tough for you. Tell your school what you are having to cope with at home.
Maybe you can study there, for example, in peace and quiet.
