my 14 year old son has gone to live with his dad

My youngest son said he does not want to live with me anymore. I admitted to him on Tuesday that I was abused as a child, something I have kept hidden. My drinking has been out of control and I believe I should have got help sooner. My eldest son is angry too, he is 22, saying I am a disgrace as I have upset so many people, which is true. I am heartbroken and just want to hide away and cry. I want my son's back! What do I do? I have failed them so badly.

I have hurt them by telling them and was drinking a lot to block out the pain for years. I feel devastated and alone x
