Re: Disappointed that relative is becoming codependent
It is nice of you to help your sister. However, since she denies it, you can only offer her info. Try to tell her to go to AA for alcoholics. The supporter/family can benefit a lot from the AA meeting as well. Also when the husband drinks a lot, that means there are some emotional issue -10% of the problem/root issues. It is also hard to control drinking. If you take a photo of the drunken person and show him what he looks like when he is "bad", he may wake up and see what is wrong with him.
Let AA meetings help her and her husband. I hope this will do the tricks. Sister does not have to accept the fact but all she needs is to check out AA meetings.
