2. I am sorry to hear this...I don't know what the experts say, but the first step in anyone's ...

recovery is that they ack that they have a problem. Also, tell your sister to not spend their retirement for they won't have time enough to recovery from gutting it out...they should be the primary goal of their retirement, not their son.

Sometimes the hardest choice is the best choice...I have family members that are alcoholics and I'm so happy I pulled the plug (no contact) for they are still surviving somehow (jobless or thereabouts), but me and my SO are so much better off (I can't handle the stress nor do I have the resources to help)...the rest of the family knows what's going on too, for they have had to deal w/ the calls asking for money, etc. too.

Usually more than just the immediate family members are negatively impacted too...
