Try This: Throw a Fake Intervention
Shhhh, It has to be a secret
A fun party idea!
Take a frenemy out for a serious night of bar hopping. At the same time convince all of his friends and relatives that he’s got a whopping problem with the sauce, and that they all must rally to coerce him into rehab. At the culmination of the bar hopping, steer him to the Intervention you’ve staged.
No matter how much he insists, no one will believe he’s not a souse. If you really hate him, urge his relatives to commit him for observation and short list him for an ice-pick lobotomy. It will be fun! And you’ll look like a hero!
Really, it just hit me
I’m four months sober—down fifteen pounds!—and no one threw me a nice Intervention! Talk about feeling cheated.

Geoffrey there has arranged for a live kangaroo at the event. I politely declined because those animals can punch hard. Imagine a nervous kangaroo on stage… Fight Club Author Pummeled to Death on Stage by Kangaroo. No thanks.
