taught me is that when someone reacts to expressions of concern about their actions that are causing them harm by lashing out, they are so deeply in denial that reasoning with them is impossible, and the only thing you can do is wait until their enablers get tired of having to give ever more support, with diminishing returns, and either stop giving more, or stop giving at all. Shortly after that, they'll hit bottom, at which point you can try and help them confront what it is that drove them to their self-destructive behaviour. The other thing it taught me is that those who don't have what it takes to confront themselves can't be saved, no matter how much you care for them.
