Outside and that is not a request that should be a demand. You are taking this man in who has a problem and he will drink again because by your post it sounds like he isn't getting help. Even if it is just in his room it is still in the air and every time he opens that door it goes into the rest of your home. I would say no about him living there but that's just me. There has to be a line drawn somewhere and I think this could hurt your family in the long run.
I don't have experience with an alcoholic but a crack addict.

The big deal is, because it's her home and it is a health hazard and she does have children to think about. Why is that so hard to comprehend?! Fan will not help that much plus it will turn your walls yellow, gross.
