Alcoholic friend
How am I suppose to deal with a friend who is an alcoholic. She has lost everything, incl. her children. I just can't stand by and see her go down the tubes. I know you have to be cruel to be
kind, but how do you tell your friend that?

AAL, the best would be to get her to join AA and to be there for her when she needs you. If you need some ammunition to help convince her, mail me at and I’ll send you something I wrote on the subject. Good luck.
