The Question Club
I would like to please get opinions from you guys. Is there anything I can do to discourage my 23-year-old son from going down the same alcoholic path as his father, grandfather, uncles and practically every male in our family? Even the DUI he got last year didn't result in him drinking any less often as far as I can tell. He lives in another state but I know from others and what I see on facebook, etc. that his life is still all about drinking. It's hard to sit by and watch him do this. Thanks. |
ETA: Thanks for the support and understanding everyone. I have been talking to him about his drinking since the first time he got drunk and got sick from it (age 14), and when he got his first MIP (age 15), etc., etc. It has been an ongoing stuggle. I faltered some when he was 17-18, overlooking some of the drinking and parties because of some personal struggles of my own. I don't drink or do drugs though, haven't for 15 years.
