Sorry to threadjack, but OP, please try to get your mother help. My uncle died due to his alcoholism (he was drunk and shot himself and some organ had been damaged too badly by the drinking and so he bled out, sorry I don't remember exact details it was 8 yrs ago) and my aunt has never been the same. Don't lose your mother to the horrible monster that is alcoholism.
Alcoholics go to meetings. She's just a run of the mill drunk.
That is false information. Alcoholism is categorized as a disease so anyone that is dependent on alcohol is an alcoholic. That's like saying a schizophrenic person isn't actually schizophrenic until they get treatment or a drug addict isn't an addict until they go to rehab. It's a ridiculous notion.
