What Can I Do?


I hope someone may have advise, I feel so over whelmed. Recently I've had to have an intervention with my older sister about her alcoholism. This was very difficult to do, but I couldn't take watching her so crazy another minute!!!! Of course, now she's not speaking to me. What Can I Do?

Welcome, Butters!

Unfortunately, there is not much you really can do. Her recovery is her responsibility. You cannot force her into sobriety. You cannot love her into recovery.

Alcoholics do irrational things when their boozing is threatened, including cutting off communication.

Please check out the friends and family members of alcoholics section on this board for some great support.
