An inquest in Crewe heard identical twin Mr Taylor had been affected by his parents' divorce as a youngster and had lived with his mother in Stockport. He later moved back to Crewe, met his partner and had a daughter.
After that relationship broke down he moved to the Isle of Man but returned to Crewe in 2006 with no job and nowhere to live.
Twin brother Christopher, of Haslington, said: "I confronted him about his drinking, with our mum, but it was as if he was punishing himself for not being there for his daughter."
A post-mortem examination revealed Mr Taylor had heart disease, a fatty liver and excessive levels of antidepressants and alcohol in his bloodstream.
Recording a narrative verdict, Cheshire's assistant deputy coroner Caroline Sumeray said: "He had consumed medication and alcohol to a level that might be regarded as excessive. He had a history of poor health due to alcohol dependency."
