(And I decided it was just fine the way it was thankyouverymuch.) But maybe you’re different. xx Julie Dear Julie, I have a best friend, Michelle.We’ve been friends since we were 15, when we used to cut school to watch .In high school, all of our friends started using heroin; I was one of the only ones who didn’t.I watched my best friend lose her baby, her husband, her home, job, everything.I’ve told her repeatedly that we have to stop, even just cut back.I moved out of the city to get away from all the bad influences.Our friendship is toxic but I’m easily depressed and so sick of being alone. They both had a very similar reaction, which is you really need to start with yourself, and neither of them thought drinking was possible for you.This is a quote from my friend : “The main thing is you need to go into a program.
And they hang out so much together, I don’t see either one nearly as much as I used to.Unless you want pity which I believe is everyone’s God-given right.Maybe it would be good for you also to think about whether or not you’d like to have a relationship in your own life.Formerly we happily hid away on weekends ordering in food, watching movies, and adoring my dog, Otto.
But when Barbara left the cocoon it forced me to examine my own life.
I swore I’d never do that and I didn’t for a long time.
