You'll definitely need to be very careful about how you approach the subject. If you go in too strong his natural defensiveness will kick in because on some level he knows what he's doing is unhealthy.

Good luck .

Yes, In order for him to get help he is going to have to want it. It's almost impossible to get somebody help if they are not cooperative. I would suggest having a heart to heart with him and let him know how concerned you are about his health. Maybe he won't sober up for himself, but he might do it for you. Good luck..

Much love, Lexis
