Stevens's brother is on an alcoholic binge. Perhaps even trying to end his life.
The brother, G, has had a very tumultuous year. Every month or two I hear a story of he has started a new job. A few weeks later l hear "he went on a huge binge and lost his job"
This has happen four or five times in the past year. Last November he went into treatment, but left half way through.
Twice in the past Steven has rescued him from this spiral. Not so this time.
G's son has advised Steven to not help. Stevens sponcer has advised the same. Their mother is not getting involved. All this is eating Steven up.
