My dad had trouble with alcohol too and it's not until he was sent to hospital with angina when he decided to stop drinking altogether. He also had a stroke a few months back but has recovered.
My mum drinks far too much and eats far too little. I understand she's under a lot of stress at work, but it's no excuse to be careless about her health.
Should I talk to her? Or is it up to her to realise?
Does my mum need to be told she has alcohol problems? Watch

You've missed the point - alcoholics don't accept its a problem so you can't 'tell' them, they have to realise its a problem themselves before they will do anything. And I wouldn't recommend that you talk to her - it'll look like 'child being cheeky' even if your intentions are good. The better route might be your Dad - he's faced the consequences and given up - talk to him about helping her to cut down. PS. Support for you here : http://www.al-anon.org/

I think maybe you should sit her down(when shes sober) and air out your concerns in a quiet relaxed tone and not in a blaming tone.
