My son is 52 years old. Bi-polar, depressed and an alcoholic. Two ruined marriages and numerous ruined relationships. I foolishly allowed him to move in with me. When he's sober, he's fun, pleasant to be with, an excellent cook, entertaining, etc. now he's a falling down asshole!! I don't want him or all his stuff in my house any longer but don't know what to do. He has no money, no job, nothing. If i throw him out, he has nowhere to go. Needless to say, he's destroyed every friendship. He has a car, so if he sobers up enough to drive, he'll probably head to a liquor store, but come right back here. I live in a retirement community and am terrified of him making a scene and rousing the entire neighborhood. My other children simply say "toss him out"!! What i need to know is --- how?

Sadly, the siblings are right, that is if he is actively drinking.
While you are projecting what he will do when he gets behind a wheel, is not healthy for you. I need to say that by nursing that idea of him drinking is giving power to which most certainly will become. Did that make sense?

What is it that you want?
I hope he makes it. I will pray for him.
