call the police and tell them from a pay phone
call the police fron the payphone and not say your name. Remember to keep your face covered just in case a CCTV cam is watching over you.
also you should think about this before you report her idrunk driving is wrong but my dad did it 3 times and now he has lost his drivers license for 5 years which sucks
You need to be brave and call the police. Regardless whether or not she loses her licence, by the sounds of it she needs to! She is putting peoples lives at risk as well as her own. You have her best interests at heart. She should know what she is doing as wrong and cannot be allowed to continue.
yea shes already gotten one DUI but shes relapsed and shes been driving drunk and id rather her immobile than the thought of her killing someone and that on my conscience
You’ve hit the nail on the head. Just do it!
first try to get faimly to help they can help more then the police somtimes
This situation aside, you really need to get help in dealing with your mom’s illness. You should really get into Alanon. My mother is a mirror image of yours and in Alanon I learned to help myself come to terms with things.
Im not religeous either… your ‘higher power’ can be anything…. it can even be something as simple as a friend or your children. To a degree you do speak alot of war stories but sometimes people find comfort in that. Alonon taught me to be selfish and only do things that is right for me… and not alow the alcoholic in my life to spoil MY serenity. They have their choices as do we. Alanon is like the Alcoholic’s AA, it teaches us to heal ourselves from the costant conflict that is living within this lifestyle.
If you explain that for personal reasons you must remain anonamous
I think they will co-operate.You realize that your mom must be drunk
at the time of reporting or it won’t work.
try screaming at her mom you’re gonna kill somebody and yourself! maybe it’ll snap in her brain next time she heads for the car …
if that don’t work, i’d hide the keys
Just be honest with her. Tell her you are NOT going to let her drive drunk, and give her multiple warnings. Keep telling her you are going to do it then do it if you have to.
