Sit down with them and ask them to join a 12 step program. If they continue drinking, then take it to the next level and threaten to leave, if they don't
Al-Anon is your best first step.
You can't "deal" with a person active in addiction. You can't change or influence them in anyway. Threats don't work - for one simple reason - they are "powerless" over their addiction.
The ONLY thing you can deal with is you. You need tools and support. Al-Anon is a good place to start getting those needs met.
A good place to start would be Codependents Anonymous.
Whether you like it or not you are a co-addict. Learning
how to change yourself and strengthen yourself so that

"fix" the problem. You cannot fix them only yourself.
