My Brother would drink beer then turn around and ask to go get cocaine. I used to be an addict and now have almost 8 years clean. I was in a sober living house when he died. He was living with our Father who was 85 at the time. My Father told me about his last day and this is what he told me, my Brother was not his usual self that last day instead of demanding to be taken to the drug dealer he asked to be taken instead, then when he got his drugs he usually told my Father to take him home but this time he said thank you. It was like he knew this was going to be the last time. My Father was feeling like it was his fault that Brian died but I take him to some open meetings with me so he knows that it was not his fault.
