    Thanks to Angie, Tweety and Sue and everyone who took the time to read and care. Update dear old Dad still hasn't got up the strength to go to the first meeting, he thinks he has plenty of time...he doesn't! This kind man from AA has offered to pick him up and take him to the meetings, to support him, be his sponsor and support, but Dad is still putting it off! I'm so frustrated, I know it's not my disease, I know I didn't cause it, but if I don't push him to it, then no-one else will. My brother is no help, he has a "busy life!" (Dads words!!!!!) ..Hey, go figure, I have three kiddos, a hubby, a dog, two rabbits, a full time NICU job, a disabled Mother, (I'm her carer!), and now this! My bro btw, is single and has an enviable lifestyle!

    Anyhow, sorry to be moaning, just some things are slipping off these shoulders, sometimes they are not broad enough!

    How do I get my Dad to finally take the step and just GO to meeting, he's putting it off cause he feels he can't give up the vodka, I know this!

    Hugs to all...XC
