Before moving to a small town, I had a neighbor whose adult sons [alcohol addicts all of them] hadn't moved out of their home. Thinking that providing them with a place to stay and food freed up their cash so they could spend it on their vice, the parents kicked them out. Next day they learn that one of their sons has tried to kill himself. They bring him back home. And he makes it [trying to kill himself] a habit. Any time he wants money for alcohol he'd tell his parents that if they didn't fork out the money he'd have no option but to end his misery. And because they were afraid that he'd do it, they let him have a "drinking allowance" each day. How would you help someone like this?
