He's just apologised for having a go about the books. So that's ok.
But I guess I'm mostly angry about his alcoholism. It's been going on for 13 years. He was in denial for the first 10. Now he admits it but won't seek help, just insists he's 'going to sort it in his own way / time'.
Maybe I'll pop over to the addicts topic sometime.
Thanks everyone for your support, and AnyFucker for making me laugh out loud
