How do I get my mom to stop drinking?
She comes home every night with a 1.5liter bottle of some shitty walmart wine and guzzles it down and eventually either passes out or ends up in her room crying which I can't bear to hear.
I've tried talking to her before, with a different attitude each time; I've tried being polite and talking quietly and trying to get her to listen to just facts about her problem, and I've yelled at her and told her that her body won't be able to handle the amount of alcohol she ingests every night.
Please, someone help me.
That's rough anon.
Alcohol addiction is the real fucking deal, it's a hard drug/addiction without a doubt.
She needs to TAPER off. It's going to be hard as fuck. You really need to talk to her. Rehab if you can afford it.
I have before, she always tries to go and get more wine after finishing off a whole bottle, and I don't want her driving drunk.
Last time it happened I had to physically pull her out of her car. And she ended up screaming in my face telling me I don't understand, then going up to her room and crying the rest of the night.
Thanks for the kind words anon
Its funny you say she needs to taper off, I told her the same thing. She asked me if I wanted anything for Christmas and I told her I wish she would drink less, she sighed and didn't respond/didn't talk to me for the rest of the day.
is she hot? if so film her when she's passed out touch her a little, have fun
book a session with a councellor and tell her the time and location
if she doesn't go, there isn't much else you can do

My mom drank herself to death.
She was always an alcoholic, but eventually it got to the point that I couldn't stand to be around her so I stopped visiting. She got lonelier and sadder and drank more and died. All I can say is tell her you love her as often as you can. Tell her you don't want her to leave you and that you wish she was healthier. In the end you can't do anything, but at the very least don't do something you'll regret. Regret is the worst thing to carry.
