You cant help someone who doesnt want to help themselves. However, let them know how dangerous alcohol is. In 2014, 9,967 peoples lives were taken due to drunk driving incidents according to the American Addiction Centers. Make it aware to whoever you are worried about that finding alcohol treatment can not only save their live but the lives of others. The only thing that helped me in the long run was my family being supportive from the start. It was hard for me to realize my alcohol addiction but Im glad I did becusse I know I wouldntbe here today if I didnt.

If you know someone who has been in the same position you could have them talk to your girlfriend about the signs of alcoholism, and how they came to terms with their problem.

Maybe if you read him or her some statistics on Alcohlism, it will scare him or her a bit! According to the National Institute on Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse, around 88,000 individuals die from alcohol related causes annually. Alcohol is no joke. I wish I knew how to help an alcoholic parent because a few years back my dad was apart of that statistic. Good luck. I hope your friend comes to there senses before its too late!https://www.niaaa.nih.gov/alcohol-health/overview-alcohol-consumption/alcohol-facts-and-statistic

The only way you can help an alcoholic is be there for them. I remember a few years back I kept asking the doctors how to help an alcoholic son. I was worried for my sons life but I let him know help was available when he wanted it. He came to me and is now in treatment.

You can only help an alcoholic who wants help. Im glad you didnt ask how to help an alcoholic in denial because it is next to impossible. Make sure they know you are there for them and research some treatment centers so you know where to take them when they want help!

I wish there was a fairy or magic wand we could just swirl and point and anyone we loved with alcoholism or addiction would be cured of their disease. UHG!
