Do I insist he stop now?
Hi, everyone. I'm been visiting the forums for some time, but haven't felt brave enough to ask any questions until now. My father is very ill and he has also been an alcoholic for the majority of his life. At this point, is there any reason for me to force him to stop drinking? When he first got sick, we tried, but that only made it worse. I'd find bottles hidden everywhere. Honestly, I'd rather he just drink out in the open instead of feeling at this stage in his life that he needs to sneak around. I suppose I am what would be defined as an enabler....but is that so bad in this case?
