So I am asking for advice! My best friend is 18 and he is an alcoholic. He never goes to school sober and I don't think I have seen him or talked to him where he is sober for more than an hour. I have been trying to be there for him but I am not sure what I can do. Please any advice or help would be appreciated. I am so scared of what he might do!

I did not quit coming here. I have just been trying to deal with everything going on on life right now.

I sympathize with your concern for your friend. How has he been able to go to classes without teachers noticing he is on alcohol? What about his parents? surely they would be aware, and do you know them? Would talking to a counselor at school help? Have you been able to talk to your friend on what he is doing to his life? Is there an AA program near you that you would be willing to go with him? You must be a true friend to stay by him no matter what may happen;. Get help for him if you can and don't feel you are responsible for what actions he may take, he will have to be the one to decide when he needs help.

Hey NDbarrelracer,

Your friend seems to have an awesome friend, you. It must be hard to see your friend in this battle with alcohol. Both of my folks battled with alcohol for a while. Who do you know who has overcome alcohol? That may bring you and your friend some hope.

You and your friend are in my prayers,
