Unanswered questions

Unanswered questions are common when someone dies from drugs or alcohol.

If you did not know about their use beforehand then you will also have many questions about how and why they were using drugs and alcohol.

They may have been living with addiction and keeping it from you, or they may have only just started experimenting.

Sometimes it may have been the first time they used drugs or alcohol to dangerous levels.

 In some case you may never get answers to all your questions, and this can be difficult to live with.

It can make it very difficult to feel a sense of closure or find meaning in your loved one’s life and death.
