Not easy: Most people don't stop an addiction, whether cigarettes or heroin, because people tell them to. Sometimes family members may actually, without even knowing it, be "enabling" addiction, and changes in their own behavior can help push the individual into getting help. You and others in family could attend alanon or naranon and learn about the family issues involved, and your own way to "recovery.".
