My brother is an alcoholic, and our mother is the enabler
My brother is an alcoholic, and our mother is the enabler. He is 41 years old, married with a four year old daughter. He has been drinking since he was 15 years old. I have stayed away from him for the majority of my life. I moved to AZ to be near my mom, she had a heart attack and was in a bad marriage. So, for almost three years I have been trying to help my mother but she is constantly bailing him out of trouble. She defends his behavior, always saying he has a disease. He has spent all of her retirement money over $48, 000. He has stole credit cards, wrecked cars, lived in a motel for almost a year, you name it he has done it to our family. He recently drove intoxicated with my three year old grandson. That was it for me, I called the police but he was gone before they got there. I refuse to have any contact with him. I will not answer his calls, or text. I am done, forever. My mother continues to defend him and my question is should I not have contact with my mother? I have told her I don't want to be near my brother, or hear any of his drama. I love my mom, but she continues to allow him to hurt everyone else in our family. Please advice?
