We have some alcoholics in our family who will be visiting for the holidays. None of them are recovering alcoholics. All of them still abuse alcohol and are in their 60s or 70s. They show no signs of stopping or wanting to receive help, even though the toll alcohol is taking on them is becoming more apparent to us. My husband and I are social drinkers. I'm curious what your thoughts are on drinking around them or giving them something to drink. They are going to be drinking all day regardless, some out in the open and others secretly, but drinking anyway. Attempts to help them in the past have failed.
