that awkward moment when your alcoholic uncle drives 45 minutes to your house “just to hang out” at 630 in the morning, then leaves before its even seven. this is the third time in the last month or so this has happened.
hes sick, really sick. i dont even want to go into all of the details, but i dont think hes going to survive the year. my mom is so broken up about this. weve tried suggesting rehab but he wont hear any of it and we have no idea what to do. help?
There’s really nothing you can do, unless they want to help themselves. If they don’t, they’re not going to change. The most you can do is not enable and use tough love all the way until he realizes there’s a problem. Hang in there, I know how it feels to watch a loved one go through addiction, just be strong and don’t let it rule your life
