Hi,Alcohol actually plays a very small part in the crap of his life although it certainly doesn't help.
He is, of course, his own worst enemy in not seeking help and acknowledging his alcohol problem, but I cannot and will not abandon him.
So you see, not all is as it seems from the outside without a full picture.
I have the utmost respect for you,
not too abandon your friend.
Outside of family friendship
is the greatest gift we have to give
to one another.
But alas it must be tempered
with give and take.
A friend such has your friend
must be told this,no matter
how pained you both may be.
For I cannot imagine your
If God forbid,
you have too stand by a cold stone angel
whilst,a family weeps for a loved one.
And please Will do not think this as bullying
on my part,
I have stood under that cold angel.
