There is a saying that recovery is only effective for those that want it not for those that need it. Forcing someone to quit their addiction or get help may not work for them because they must first understand that they have a problem and they need help. Denial can be very powerful for people suffering from addiction and telling them that they need to change may fall on deaf ears.
Recovering from alcohol addiction is by no means an easy process. Recovery is a life long process, and any recovering alcoholic knows that in order to stay healthy and sober it is necessary to constantly use the tools that they developed in treatment in order to fight the urges and triggers that are simply a reality in day to day life.
Addiction is a disease that can be extremely difficult to recover from. When a person is addicted to drugs or alcohol, they are very likely to also suffer from conditions like depression and low self esteem, which can make it even more difficult to make the decision to seek help because an addict may not recognize their own self worth or realize that they deserve the chance to be happy and healthy again.
