Answers: 1. Do you want to stop drinking?
2. Do you think your life has become unmanageable?
3. Are you willing to go to any lengths to stay sober?
4. Would you like a better life?
5. Can I take you to AA?


1) Drinking is good sometimes, but you *really* can't think of any better way to spend your time?

2) The old cigarette pack argument: think of all the money you spend on liquor a year-- $5 day is $1800 a year. Wouldn't you rather spend that on your retirement, lease an awesome new car, help put your kid through school, or even go on vacation?

3) A man is known by the company he keeps. If your friends are not noticing your habit or helping to prolong it, are they really the best friends for you?

4) What poor person is going to have to give up their liver or kidneys to help you continue the life you already had a shot at, but decided to squander? When you're violently throwing up blood every day from your cirrhosis, how proud will you be in front of your children and family?

5) It's so easy to get help. Why aren't you seeking any?

It doesn't do any good to reason with an alcoholic. You can ask them where they want to be in a year, 5 years. Ask them how they think they might get there. Ask them where they will be if they continue on their current path. And ask them if they want the number to the nearest AA group or counselor. Good luck.
