How can I help this person?

BlackRoseFairy
There is a person that is close to me, which has a problem with alcohol.

I truly want to help this person get over this, but I simply don't know how.
We have had several conversations about this and sometimes they broke down in tears, at others they were offended and became angry, at others I was the culprit for calling out the obvious...
What matters is that there is no change whatsoever.

I am truly worried and I want to help, but I am also tired of trying and it only makes me sad to see this happening again and again... Same behaviour, same excuses, same problems arising...

What can I do?
