i was talking to Jo today… she is so quick to put the blame for all the bad in her life on everyone but her!

Her parents took too much of her time while they were in bad health making her bad marriage worse

her husband never finishes or does things with her

her son bad grades and drug issues are the cause of her stress

her job is killing her family time because she works weekends and that is why her life is crappy

bka bla bla! It really is because she is drunk from the time she wakes up and until she passes out!

that is why she hates her job! She can’t drink and she is always hung over!

her being a drunk has made her some try to escape by drinking… and her husband cannot stand to be around her drunk ( not can I )

Maybe tell her when she goes to rehab and stays there for 6 months maybe you will come and visit her just to see if she is really there and when she is done tell her to call you but not until she has been sober for at least 6 months.

@jaythesmartone not sure that would be kind of me to do that. I try to be supportive until she is ready to get help that will just make her avoid me

@kaliko Maybe before you do that as a last resort tell her how you feel when she is around you drunk, maybe that might help and then say something like :one of these days I won’t be around when you really do need me” then maybe she will get help sooner rather then later?

@jaythesmartone good advice! I might do that

I’m sorry about your difficult friendship with Jo. That must be really shitty, because I know she’s one of your best friends.

@justamillennial thank you

My ex is like that.  Everything is everyone elses fault.  She has no responsibility whatsoever

It’s frustrating to see a friend destroy their life with alcohol or drugs.  I don’t know what you can do that will change their behavior.
