Three years ago started drinking from stress at a job. The drinking became worse so quit the job. Next job was to stressful too, so quit that one because drinking became even worse. Then my mom died and family members are trying to get all of the inheritance and trying to make me look bad so they can get mine too. They don't know I drink, they've been doing things like saying I took all of moms valuables, when I didn't, they did. Saying terrible hurtful things about me that's not true. I don't even live in the state they live in! They've always been the greedy type. Now I'm unemployed at age 58, no degree to fall back on, only work experience. We can't afford all our bills so we put them on credit cards what we don't have money for. I quit drinking 2 weeks ago and I'm having a very difficult time dealing with my world around me falling apart and trying to not drink. Somedays seem almost impossible. I've handle the drinking part ok other than bad bad cravings everyday. I just need support from since my family are not there for me. My husband, I think, is trying to not crack under all this pressure. He's been a great support, but I feel I've taxed him out. Any help or advice would be so appreciated. Thank you!
