Is family struggle normal in the family? If you will be in this situation, your brother keep on nagging you to give him money for his vices would you give him, knowing that you are the eldest of the family and everybody lean on you for their financial needs. Would you think to quit or leave alone your family? its really tiremsome supporting your family and they never value how much tears and perspiration you made in working everyday to support them!?

It's normal in a lot of families, i think. Especially in specific countries. However, abbuse is only endured if you want to. You have, after all, the power. You should be respected and should use your good judgement when spending your money. Addictions shouldn't be supported (that's merely my opinion, mind you), and also, you should be able do know if your family loves you or are just exploiting you. In the later... my friend... move on... keep yourself to your legal obligations and nothing more.
