I think that what your sister's doing to cope is just another version of what we're all doing. IMO, stress leads to anxiety which leads to wanting to escape or find a way to cope. When I'm picking I'm _completely_ zoned out. Might be the same for her drinking as well. Just be there for her as much as you can, without enabling her use. I'm sure she'll appreciate the support and having a friend.

yea that is quite true, she's lost all hope in herself and thinks she cant change. i guess the longer you do it the harder it is to change. rehab did help for her, but she needs that constant support, but my dad has pretty much disowned her. it was hard for him as his own father was an alcoholic. i never get to see my sister because she has no phone, no home, to be honest i have no idea where she is atm..i want to help but i have no idea how. its driving me crazy
