Hello Everyone, My 60 year old brother is an alcoholic. He has been for treatment many times. He comes out and is like another person for awhile. He has been thrown out of every place he lives because of things he does when under the influence. My older brother has taken him in and will never again have him live with him. He has lived with me many times in between the times he has been trying to find another place to live. His options are over, he has nowhere to live but with me. He doesn't have enough income to get his own place. He has a disability income due to a back issue. So with the promise of staying sober my older brother paid for a room and bathroom for him to be built in my basement. Guess what? He is still drinking! He doesn't drive, so when I'm working he walks to the liquor store. My son-in-law saw him. I never said a word to him about being seen until a few weeks later when he came upstairs and I knew he had been drinking. He's mean and nasty when he drinks. I confronted him and he lied right to my face as he's done many times. I went downstairs and found the beer hidden in a closet. Brought it upstairs and put it in front of him. He got mad and said he can have a few beers what's the problem? I told him to get out if he wants to keep drinking or start going to AA meetings. He refuses, says he can stop on his own, doesn't need to go. He is working on finding a place. He has told me that may times. Same thing happens, I am at my wits end with him.
