My 70 year old mother has been drinking regularly in the evenings every other night for a while now. At one time she confessed since she retired nearly 8 years ago. She's getting meaner and meaner and more and more self-aborbed. She also has COPD. Her heart and lungs have been affected by the COPD, I feel the alcohol must be affecting her heart as well. Is there any hope that she can quit drinking at this age? When do I stop hoping? And is it natural for a regular drinker to get so mean?
