make them feel they are not alone, talk to them, or listen to their endless repetitive stories. always be with them.
Well, first off, as pipmistress said, you have to listen and try to explain to the addicted that they are ruining their life and those lives associated with them. You need to show your love and support BUT do not enable them by any means.
Offer to help them in any way possible and let them know they are not alone. Do not give them money or rides to the liquor store or anything that will make them think it is okay to driink or use. Just be supportive and show you care and love them and want to help them get sober.
