Help For My Mum
Are you the child of an addicted mum? You may be feeling overwhelmed, confused, and alone. You’re not alone. Addiction is a serious problem that can affect many aspects of a person’s life. It can take a toll on relationships, finances, and mental and physical health. Read on to find out how we can help you with your mums addictions.
As a child of an addicted mum, it is important to know that you are not responsible for your mum’s addiction. You are not responsible for her choices or her behaviour. You can’t control her addiction, but there are things you can do to help.
First, it is important to educate yourself about addiction. Understanding what addiction is and how it affects the brain can help you better understand your mum’s behaviour. This can also help you better empathize with her and find ways to help.
Second, you should create a support system for yourself. Talk to a trusted adult, such as a family member or teacher, about your struggles. You can also reach out to support groups, such as AA, for advice and support from other people in similar situations.
Third, you should learn how to set healthy boundaries. Let your mum know what behaviours are and are not acceptable. Be firm but respectful when establishing boundaries. Fourth, practice self-care and look for ways to cope with stress. This could involve exercising, journaling, or spending time with friends.
Finally, remember to be patient and compassionate with your mum. Addiction is a difficult disease to overcome, and it takes time. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to helping an addicted mum. Every situation is different, and it is important to find what works best for you and your family. With patience and understanding, you can help your mum get the help she needs.
