My father's stories kept me from drinking alcohol.

Historioj de mia patro detenis min de alkoholtrinkado.

  • malebligi al iu faru ion
  • What about the cases where you are kept from doing something, that you are still able of doing? "My father's stories kept me from drinking alcohol, even though I wanted to try, like all my friends did." I don't think the sense here is that the stories made it impossible for the person to drink. Instead, they caused a certain desicion. – Antonia Montaro Dec 19 '16 at 6:47

This is from Duolingo:

La malbona vetero malebligis al ni labori.

  • "Halti" ne estas transitiva. La tri supraj frazoj estas malĝustaj. – Lee Dec 20 '16 at 14:34
  • @Lee Vi pravas kaj dankon – Lumo5 Dec 20 '16 at 14:49
  • This answer has been edited but there are still some issues with it. It would be better to say malhelpi al iu -- but that doesn't mean quite the same thing as keeping someone from doing something. It only means that doing it would become more difficult. – Tomaso Alexander Dec 20 '16 at 15:08
  • At the time I'm leaving this comment, it looks like this answer has been edited again. It's standing at -1, and in the current version looks essentially the same as my own answer, so I suppose I should vote it up (to 0). – Tomaso Alexander Jan 23 '17 at 13:17
