    ...is to pretend everything is fine, ignore the big elephant in the room, talk about safe topics like football or movies.

    Nothing can say will make any difference.

    The only thing you'll get in return is bitterness, resentment, denial, anger.

    Most likely, you'll hear a bunch of other crap from your childhood, "how come you got a car when you were 16 and I didn't?" shit like that.

    Honestly, ask them to not participate in family functions/holidays until they get their act together.

    In a way, yes they want to be excluded because it feeds into their cycle of self loathing. However, over time, being purposefully excluded is painful. Even for an addict. Schmoopy was not excluded from his family holiday, he opted out. If he was told he couldn't participate, he would have exploded
