    :p

    On a serious note, a friend of mine is due one very soon for alcoholism--any experiences with interventions from you shed members?

    Be a good host and have plenty of cold beer and snacks on hand.

    I have not been the object nor a participant in one. Not always sure they are helpful.

    No.
    If someone is behaving poorly, I blow them off.

    Years ago I had a problem with prescription drugs. It got bad enough to where I was on the streets for a while. I finally had enough and gave myself an intervention. I thought long and hard about killing myself and then decided that would be the pussy way out. I sought out some help and got clean. This October will be 10 years.

    I've had to intervene a couple times in here to stop people from listening to Stern.

    I was part of one for an old friend who has a real bad drinking problem.
    Didn't work. He's worse now than he ever was. He's determined to drink himself to death and doesn't want any help.
    I cut him lose a while ago.

    Yeah, I don't think this one will work either.

    This gal was diagnosed with chronic liver failure about 6 months ago and drinks in secret. If she doesn't go back home, I doubt she'll see another year. 35 years old.

    It sucks but there's only so much you can do.
    I've been friends with this guy since elementary school. He has his mind made up and that's it. He's not quitting.
