There are two things at play here:

1) We can't really comment on this story because we don't know all the facts and weren't involved at all. It's clear the woman went too far, and I hope she and her son get the help they need.

2) It's a reflection of how frustrated, angry, and out-of-control we can also become as loved ones of someone who suffers from addiction. If the addict/alcoholic does not get help to get better and we do not get help to get better, then the family dynamic spirals out of control. That is reflected perfectly in this story.

And before this becomes an all-out "us vs. them" thread, this is closed.
