    I think he is alcoholic. His brother owns a hotel and that is all I know about his brother I do not know what his drinking situation is.

    My maintenance man has a massive debt that his wife ran up, she now is not working because she's on Anti-Anxiety pills and everything because of guilt or whatever because of running up the debt. I have previous given them money to help pay the debt then he has told me his wife instead spend that money on a shopping spree, so even though I could I have not offered to financially help them anymore because his wife cannot be trusted to control herself.

    What a mess this is. I think even if I told him he drinks too much he would say no, so as with any addiction unless the person admits they have a problem then there is no use with rehab.

    Just a point of note, you gave him the money and somehow it magically ended up in the wife's pocket.

    It sounds like they both have addictions (or more accurately, "dependencies") that feed each other in a mutually-perpetuating cycle.

    Yes, also his wife is sometimes semi suicidal, he has said that she has said he would be better if she was dead. Mr. Lucy was even thinking of approaching her to offer her to visit his Consulting Room so she could talk to him as a patient.

    It can't hurt. In any event, you will have tried and can have a "clean" conscience.

    If somebody gets depressed because they do not have any alcohol, they are likely an addict. And since alcohol itself is a CNS depressant, drinking isn't the wisest thing to do when you are depressed.

    Well he has not communicated at all with me today since this morning, this because this morning he texted and I said I had been out getting something for Kid E and then he text me and say that as I was out I could have got him some booze because I know he has no booze in and so he is now sulking or whatever because I did not get him booze for today.

    His daughter aged 17 years in age wants an auto, but he cannot get her one because of this debt he has to pay off so a few weeks ago he asked me could I give his daughter the money to get the auto and she could pay me back x amount each month and I said I could not do that right now. I could give her the money but the actual reason I do not want to is because now I do not trust that the money is for the daughter, all I know it could be used not even to pay off the debt but it could end with his wife blowing that money on a shopping spree.

    He is excellent at doing maintenance for me but I don't know, this is very complicated now with his needing booze and his fucked up wife.
