That One Guy Posted September 24, 2017 Share Posted September 24, 2017 Spending four days straight on vacation with a friend only to witness what a truly raging alcoholic he is. :(Feeling helpless? You can't save someone from themselves if they don't want saving or refuse to acknowledge that they need it. And sometimes in order to move towards acknowledging a problem, that troubled person needs encouragement or a kind word from a friend. 'Tis true, but that kinda change has to come from within sadly, having witnessed 3 very close friends and my dad drink themselves to pieces.You can offer as much support as possible, but those people have to:a) want to change andb) have the discipline to change. I guess belief/faith in a higher power would help too. Luckily my friends are still alive, but sadly still boozin' it up like they were 18-year-olds. Every night.Of course I'm stoned and half-loaded as I write this. It's sad to see the Jeckyl-Hyde thing that alcoholism seems to bring with it too. Sorry to hear about your friend, Goose. Hope things didn't get too awkward/weird/f***ed-up. It's a shitty situation for all parties involved.It's weird now. He rolled in hammered last night and I spent half the night corraling him to keep him from walking out into the night in his skivvies like some perverted zombie. He left two days early this morning, unannounced. I'm guessing out of embarrassment. He left behind that stale smell of booze that only an alcoholic can.:( Doesn't sound fun, man. Does his departure change the next couple days of plans for you? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
