I’m her younger brother. I’m 24 and I still live with my parents.
My sister is 28 and has a flat half an hour away.
She often calls when she is drunk and sometimes I have to go out to pick her up because she is out alone late at night.
Twice, now, the landlord of the pub where she drinks has called me from her phone and asked me to pick her up because she has passed out and nobody knows what to do with her.

The worst thing about all this is, she is a school teacher and I’m sure she will lose her job before long if she carries on the way she is going.
My parents think she just drinks a bit at weekends but I know different.
