I fear a good friend of mine has a drinking problem. This is someone I know fairly well enough to say something to…but I just don’t know how to muster up the words or courage to without pissing them off. This person has been a great source of wisdom to me, and annoyance and has caused me anger at times. I don’t really know how to bring it up without starting a fight.
I think the reality is, is that when someone is facing an addiction, you can talk to them until your face turns blue, but until they’re ready to listen, they will continue to do what it is that they’re doing.
I hold no judgement against my friend, I just hold a lot of worry in my heart.
