Does your family threaten you when you are sober? If they do not, then your sobriety is key to avoiding legal problems. Fortunately or unfortunately, you can be subject to different types of involuntary help if you are engaging in activity that is dangerous to yourself or others. You are lucky to have people in your life that care enough about you to insist that action is taken actively to control your disease. And if you want a life/career, how is what they are doing stopping your and/or affecting your career? It would seem that sobriety would be the best for you. Good luck!
