Hi, that must be a hard thing to deal with and to see your sister going through this. Have you asked for some support for yourself from alcoholics anonymous? They can give advice and guidance.

I know how hard this is. My sister has been an addict for almost 20 years. She used in her last pregnancy and now my 3 year old nephew has clearly had effects from it because he still does not speak. I consistently remind myself that she is my sister, so I love her, but this is her decision, and I cant force her to stop, I can only encourage and be a positive influence towards a healthier lifestyle. I've noticed that when people get mad at her over her decisions it just makes her depressed and more likely to use. Stay positive, stay strong, know that this is not anyone's fault but her own, and sobriety is one day at a time.

Victoria96 Is your sister living with you? How old is she? Same with my son, it has been about 12 years.
