Why is it that my Mom keeps telling me i’m enabling an alcoholic. I mean really is it all that bad that i’m helping my Dad? What does enabling an alcoholic really mean anyway?

Thats a tough spot to be in. If your Dad is an alcoholic, and you buying him alcohol or encouraging him to drink, you are certainly enabling him with his alcoholism.

Enabling an alcoholic means that you are making it easier for your Dad to drink. Helping him continue his destructive alcoholism.
