Look in your phone book or on the web for your local Alcoholics Anonymous group. They have knowledge in this area. Good luck!

First of all ask your mother to go a week without a drink.

If she doesn’t want to, or doesn’t like the idea, then she has an alcohol dependancy problem. That doesn’t mean she is a “drunk” but it does mean that she needs some sort of help.

Don’t put it in derogotory terms, she needs help and understanding, but so do you. Explain to her that her drinking makes her into another person who you don’t like nearly as much as the real person who you miss dearly.

Use the week rule. If she laughs at the idea, then tell her that she is in denial. If she isn’t alcohol dependant then a week is no problem.

If she does go a week, talk to her about it and ask her to be honest with herself about how she found the week. Ask her if she could manage drinking just one night a week and to count her alcohol units…

Good Luck
