Please help me I believe in you

Patient

Q: I know a person whom has a drinking problem. This person doesn't believe it but, everyone else in this person's life thinks that this person needs help. I am very concerned about this persons health. This person is family so, I'd probably be able to help than anyone else. I have to say that this person refuses to get help. This person doesn't care about the dangerous risks to life. I want to find a way to convince this person to get help. This person also has a smoking problem. The family wants this person to quit the addiction habit as well. Don't tell me that there is no way and let the person handle it himself. Don't tell me anything that won't be useful for me. I need to help this person. I'm very close to this person in so many ways. There is always a way to help someone do the right thing. Please help me.
