Hi, Logan! Congratulations on your transplant! And welcome to the forum. I hope you will come back often, as we need members who have actually gone through transplant.
Sandi, I know that AA isn't the only way, but I do think it's the best way. However, if someone isn't willing to go and at least try it, you cannot force them. Nor do you have any power over whether Mike drinks or not. I am fully aware of that and glad that you are, also. Many transplant centers do offer counseling as an alternative to AA. Since a transplant is not an option for Mike, then there's no point in discussing either one, except for others who may be reading this. We have many "lurkers" who read posts and never do post, or maybe are encouraged to post by something they have read. So answers many times are not directed just to you...or even directly to you...but are for general info. However, people suffering with liver disease, who are doing everything required of them (including total abstinence), do get a little riled up by someone who apparently isn't as motivated to save his life.
You are handling the situation the best way you can, and that is all you can really do.
