Marcel started drinking heavily at 18 years old. He met a nice woman, got married and quit drinking for 8 to 9 years because his wife didn’t drink. But when his wife had a work-related injury; she became severely depressed, and tragically committed suicide. Her death sent Marcel into a tailspin. He began “drinking with a vengeance.” He would mix pills with his alcohol, and wound up having a heart attack. Despite promises to his children, he resumed drinking and using drugs to the point he brought a second heart attack upon himself. But this time Marcel’s kids told him they no longer believed he would stop drinking.
