A friend of mine is trying to get sober. She goes to a college a few hours away, and has had problems with alcohol for a long time – both of her parents are also alcoholics. She keeps texting me whenever she gets drunk and I never know how to respond. She seems to want me to make some sort of judgment about her actions, and I don’t want to tell her I think she’s doing the wrong thing because I think that might make her even sadder and make her want to drink even more. I don’t know what to do. Is there some sort of resource for people trying to help their friends get sober?
