I Wanted to Take Her to Rehab - She said "No No No"

"S" gets in touch on Saturday complaining of boredom during her week-end release from rehab...

I try my best to entertain her but fail miserably, and by Sunday afternoon she's drunk and raving again.

It's quite a struggle to persuade her to go back.

So I drive her back to rehab, thankful that my addictions are to socially acceptable things like books and lost causes.

I don't think you can motivate yourself with a negative (i.e. 'I will not drink'). I think you have find something positive to replace the reward that drink brought her. You beat a bad habit by replacing it with a good habit.

Maybe rehab tries to do this, but hanging around other people whose only connection with 'S' is that they are also not suppose to drink is probably of limited long term value.
