You could be noble and take her to AA meetings and support her through the 12 steps. Or, you could be smart and dump that sloppy drunk.

I don't know what the Heck #1 just said but all I know is that its best to stay out of a relationship with people that have drinking problems. You can only go downhill. I've seen a whole family torn apart by one asshole.

Damn straight she needs to wake up and smell the coffee. (Or alcohol in her case). Alcohol abuse is one thing that just wrecks everyone around them, i know from being on the receiving end of not one but 2 family members with drink issues. Help her and support her, get her into rehabilitation. She has one chance to sort her life out and get better. You need to be firm and straight with alcoholics. Good luck!

Alanon is a support group for people who are close to an alcoholic (relative, spouse, friend, etc.).1s comment was essentially- get support or leave the relationship

People, alanon is just an abbreviation for Alcoholics Anonymous. It's just another way of saying AA.

54- alanon is actually a little different than Alcoholics Anonymous. It's for people who are are close with someone who is an alcoholic, not an alcoholic themselves.

Alcoholics are not all "assholes." Most of them are extraordinary people with a self-destructive problem. I was that girl once. Maybe OP can help her just as my husband and subsequent daughter helped me.

I don't see why #3 got thumbs down, drinking is a problem that some people don't realise and if she's a heavy drinker then she should go to rehab.

If that's the case, I'll have to inform my deadbeat alcoholic uncle that he doesn't have a problem afterall.

I think the clue was that she just found out that she likes alcohol... And my ex did the exact same thing. Found alcohol and all the drunk guys that go along with it.

I'll probably get thumbed down for this, but #5, you shouldn't get so upset that you've been thumbed down. I'm very sorry that you've lost someone to drinking, I know how that feels, my father died from drinking when I was 13; but that is no excuse for you to be thumbed up. Pity is not an excuse to get whatever you want.

39- Re-read my comment. I said hopefully she'll realize she has a problem and seek help, nothing I said implied that anyone should try to force her to.

Sorry to hear that... She isn't the right girl for a healthy relationship, but maybe you can try to have a serious talk with her if its not to late
