    My mother is an alcoholic and drug addict too and you have to think that it is not just a strain on your marriage but dangerous. If I were you I would pack up her stuff and take her to a womens shelter, that way she is not homeless but your family is no longer in danger.

    Get her a hotel room. The American Red Cross can help if she does become homeless.

    I would not kill my marriage over a alcoholic mother, or anyone who is an addict.

    My prayers are with you all.

    I would try to find a meeting for her with AA. They have them in churches and the like. My mom has been sober for 4 months and I would have been devastated if I turned my back on her during her darkest hour. She's so much better now and improving all the time. As hopeless as you feel she may be...I bet she feels ten times worse even though she doesn't show it. Good luck :)

    Until addicts have consequences they don't learn lessons. Out she goes. It is called tough love. Direct her to the nearest shelter and rehab. Tell her that you love her, but she is sick and needs to get clean before you can have a relationship with her. This is not a harmful thing to do...it is a caring decision to make....for the whole family! take care!
