13 May I know someone who I think has a problem. How can I get them to go to a meeting?
As a friend or family member of a potential alcoholic, it might be best to start by attending an open meeting or attending a meeting of Alanon. You can also read the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous if you choose also. These are ways you might gain a better idea of what alcoholism is and how you might want to proceed from there.
