    Re dealing with addictions/alcoholism, what you are doing regarding staying in your own lane is perfect… maintaining your boundaries regardless. She doesn’t sound like she’s ready to stop drinking yet. So I would suggest getting on with your life. It’s great you are not as impacted by her guilt trips.

    Someone who is still in active addiction will always want more. As long as they have someone giving them what they need they will continue taking. And there’s nothing you can do to make her want recovery. Take care of yourself.
