I’ve drunk enough for a lifetime. My body and my mind react negatively to it now. I’ve been sober for 111 days now, but realise now that I want and need a community of like-minded souls to interact with and to remind me how important it is to stay sober.
Yeah, it’s a frustrating situation, and I’m sure that you really want to help, but sometimes helping means that you have to leave people alone to come to their own realisations and decisions about their situation. I reckon just being who you are, an example of what sobriety looks like, will give your friend the opportunity to see that it can be done and really is the way to go. I bet that at some point, after you’ve gone and she feels the emptiness of where she’s at, she’ll think about your example and consider changing her life for the better. Also, I’m sure this isn’t the first time you’ve encountered situations since going sober, where you sort through your old friendships and let some connections go while you start building new and more positive ones.
