So do I. Sometimes seeing someone else struggle with their addiction makes me uneasy in my recovery, and at other times it makes me grateful for what I've been able to achieve. She is pretty busy right now denying that she's got a problem (she said she'd consider going to a treatment program if we found a couple for her to choose from - but that was last week. This week, she doesn't have a problem. Right....). And I think it's been all the starting and stopping with her that's been wearing me down - she wants help, she doesn't need any of our f*ck*ng help, rinse and repeat. And it's that dance that I'm trying to disengage myself from.

Right now I'm thinking that the more inclined her family is to come to her rescue, the less inclined she'll ever be to see that she has a serious problem - because she keeps getting bailed out (literally). I think we might have to sit on our hands the next time she falters.
