Re: My friend is a recovering alcoholic and I am worried

I think you are right I have to stand back and leave her to work through things and just hope that she gets to the point that she realises she needs help

Re: My friend is a recovering alcoholic and I am worried

Well we went to lunch and exchanged gifts and had a nice time, She thanked me for the support during the year and I said not at all, I will always be there for you in any way I can and that I love her to bits. We chatted about stuff we would normally talk about and it is hard to know really, My gut ...

Re: My friend is a recovering alcoholic and I am worried

I dont know if anyone else has noticed, I have my suspicions that a couple of people might but they havent said anything to me, I think they know how close we are and I doubt they will, Last year one person said something to me and I thought about it and went to her and she denied at time she had a ...

Re: Break Up.......So Confused

Roxiey - listen to Tim Sindy - the words come later but your heart speaks volumes and you give support just by posting and it is good that you do. That post worked for me just fine. I witter away here because, to be honest, I have too much free time on my hands. But I did write something once which...

Re: Break Up.......So Confused

not really sure what to say to you as I dont have a lot of experience, I found BE recently too and my friend is an alcoholic and I posted about it, the posters have given me some good advice and it helps to know that someone is here to listen to you, All I can say other than that is give you hugs xx...

Re: My friend is a recovering alcoholic and I am worried

Thanks I will have a think about what you said, I have often in the past sent her an email or text or card telling her I am proud of her for doing what she has done and the courage it must have taken to do what she did, I know I have to tread very carefully with this and that it is her battle, but m...

Re: My friend is a recovering alcoholic and I am worried

I know and you are right to a certain extent, I have issues besides my friend and her alcohol problems, and when I come back from holiday I am going to see a counsellor about them,

But I do need support too in trying to deal with my friend and her alcohol problems

Re: My friend is a recovering alcoholic and I am worried

today is the same so far, looks and seems normal, but I suppose it is early, Thinking back on how she was yesterday, you would not know a thing, She seemed as if she had not been drinking and I would not know a thing if I had not seen the empty bottles Why cant I shake the feelings of guilt that I s...

Re: My friend is a recovering alcoholic and I am worried

It is good for me to somewhere to talk about it and I think in my heart I know she is drinking but if I say anything about the bottles I saw she will clam up, that is what hapoened last time and she denied she had a problem but a few days or week later went to rehab so I don't know if I am right per...

Re: My friend is a recovering alcoholic and I am worried

Thanks for what you said, I prob am being hard on myself thinking should I be doing more or should I contact her family but unless I have concrete proof I don't feel I can despite what I feel I just have to keep reminding her she is a worthwhile person as from what I gather alcoholics have low self ...

Re: My friend is a recovering alcoholic and I am worried

Thanks for that, I am just scared for them, I never asked them what caused their drinking problem. I figured if they want to tell me they would and if they dont then no big deal I love them to bits in a friendly way and that is why I am scared for them and have wondered have I been doing the right t...
