    I had a friend once. We became friends in high school and pretty much were joined at the hip. I had a rough time in my home life and his family took me in and made sure I was safe when I needed it.

    We graduated from high school and he moved about an hour away. From that point on I had to initiate all contact. We still did alot of thing together. When we turned 21 all he wanted to do was drink. I went along with it for a while then I pulled back. I could not stand not having him in my life so I started hanging out with him again.

    This behavior went on for 10 years. Finally I got sick of it when his first daughter was born and he continued to drink and party. I could not deal with it any longer.

    It has been 2 years since I have seen or talked to him. He was my only friend and now I consider him dead and I have no friends.

    I am at a point in my life where I am very lonely and am in great need of a friend. Someone to hang out with. Someone to have deep converstions with.

    I am married and have a good relationship with my wife, but I still need a friend.



    I just had to get that in writing and get some feedback.

    Brother, we all need a friend to talk to. I've found that this forum has helped me, even with all the issues I have. I've always felt as though this is a good place to vent and get some great advice on how to handle things. It's up to me now to take that advice and utilize it.

    I think you need to go to him, and now give him the help he needs to get rid of his alcohol abuse. You could become best friends afterwards.
