This situation is so hard, because she has to really want to stop drinking. And when it becomes an addiction, it is so hard to stop.
Might I suggest that you talk to a professional about
this? We can be here for you, but you need somebody more educated with this situation. If I were you, I would seek counseling, you really need the support.
I lost two sisters very young. One drank herself to death. There was nothing anybody could do to stop her. She just kept drinking and drinking. Until she got very ill. She also had lupus. So it was really sad, so I understand how you feel. Could you talk your mother into counseling? I really think that could help her. You may have to let her know how this is effecting you. To make you feel better.
though I really don't feel capable on advising you with this, I would say that you should try to get her into counseling. What about
a family intervention? Have you talked to anybody in the family?
I am really at a loss for words, because this hits so close to home. I hope that you can find a solution. Best wishes.
