L2. Invite everyone, let them sort it out themselves. At the party, serve limited liquor- jut beer and wine or a spiked punch if at all.
How is the type of booze she serves related to her issue?

if you can believe you can trust yourself to control your own spending, go as cash-free as possible. Use either debit or credit for all purchases possible,
I find this an odd suggestion. To me, its easier to control spending when you are cash free. Back in the day, I would go to the atm and pull out $20 because I needed $8. That $12 remaining was way more likely to get spent once it got into my pocket than it would be nowadays when I would put the $8 on the card.

Angry and Fed Up should also consider filing criminal charges. Is this an extreme response? Perhaps, but if Mom were to go into a 12 step program, she would be required to make amends to her child for the theft that she committed, wouldn't she?
And how do you KNOW that mom would be sentenced to a 12 step program vs jail time?

I believe that I said "IF". A judge could order it or a doctor could prescribe it. I was simply posing a hypothetical solution, that's all.

Yeah, but when you get the cops involved you have no control over which way things go from that point. Seems like a big risk to me. Unless you're ok with your thief of a mom possibly going to jail
