Look after your own problems, and not everyone else's. Until you can be well and stable, and healthy, you can't be of real use to anyone else. Its sad about your mom, but until SHE acepts that she is alcohol;ic and needs help, and sincerely accepts expert help from the proper sources, nothing you can do would be useful to her.
