Personal Narrative: My Brother's Addiction

Satisfactory Essays
My brother has been clean and sober for about a year. During the two years of his addiction I found it difficult to live with him and even be around him. I was never able to talk to my brother about his addiction because the drugs had transformed him into a completely different person as if someone else was living in his skin. I lived in complete fear of my brother. I didn’t feel comfortable at home whenever my brother was there, so I stayed out late to avoid being at home. My grades slowly dropped because I didn’t have time to do any schoolwork and I would miss out on lessons because I would sleep in class. I knew that I couldn’t blow off my schoolwork, so instead of staying out late I would stay in school to finish any work that I had left.
