Well maybe talk to her just the 2 of you, and if nothing changes talk to her with the whole family. That way there she knows that people love her, and that they care about her wellbeing and care about what she is doing to herself. Support her and her cause to get better. Maybe you should start telling the family about how bad it is getting; the more people who try to talk to her, the more possibility there is for her to realize that she has a beautiful family, and that she has more in her life than just beer.

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

Write your mom a letter. Tell her exactly how you feel. Don't leave anything out. By writing a letter, you're able to get your emotions out into the open. Leave it for her before you go to school. That way she can reflect on it while you're at school. Tell her everything on your mind. Describe to her the change that you want to see in her. If she doesn't accept that, talk to her. With the whole family. Let her see how much her actions affect you. Tell her how much you love and care about her. And I really love Chris' response. Try these things. I hope things get better for you. I truly do. You deserve a healthy, happy family. Take care<3
