Hi poonam
first talk to him when he is sober,find out if he has any worries or emotional problems which are forcing him to succumb to alcohol consumption,if your attempts fail, take him to a psychiatrist .if he does not wish to accompany you,then let him know that there are medicines to make him quit alcohol. motivate him to leave the habit. also inspire him by giving books, encourage him to socialize.have faith and patience.

Hello.Welcome.Your father has become chronic alcoholic and psychiatric treatment will not yield any benefit.Your father will stop seeing psychiatrist.What will you do in such circumstance.Best is put him on DISULFIRAM,in consultation with your doctor,and without telling your father.If alcohol is ingested after taking disulfiram.number of distressing symptoms like flushing,perspiration,uneasiness,mental confusion occurs.Consult your doctor for this.Good luck.
