I need help on how to help my mom
Please help me, my mom is an alcoholic and she has been for many years. She has a very addictive personality but I know she can get over her alcoholism. She has gone through a great deal of pain, but now she is slowly becoming worse and more self-distructive. She has overcome cigarettes before I was born, and now she needs to overcome drinking. When she drinks she becomes violent, angry, and wreakless. Now my parents are at the beginning of a divorce and my mom has had a boyfriend since before the divorce was announced to me and my brother. She claims her drinking was because of my father. (although his crimes go as far as not doing dishes and house work). My mother doesn't have a true job. She helps my dads business as an accountant. She dropped out of college. So I understand where her stress is coming from and why she drinks, but I want to show her that there isn't a need for drinking. Before she hurts herself or someone else. What should I do? I have already tried many things, since I was 12. Taking away the wine, threats, and now I'm trying a more positive approach. But I'm not sure that it's working especially since she isnt at my house anymore and is now going back and forth to a boyfriends house.
