Iwantittoend Posted June 22, 2008 Share Posted June 22, 2008 I've had a good friend that I've known for about 4 years now. We recently got back into contact with each other and have been hanging out nearly every weekend. He's a great guy and he means well, but he has a problem with alcohol and smoking weed. His family has a long history of alcoholism and it seems like he's running down the same path. Nearly every weekend, he wants to go out and get plastered. I'm fine with that every once and awhile, but lately it's been getting excessive. He calls nearly every night to do it. Even during the week now. To make matters worse, his stepdad physically and emotionally abuses him. Nearly every time I drive him home from somewhere, he tries to find excuses for me to drive him around so he doesn't have to go home. I'd say he should move out, but he has no money. He's only 18. Every paycheck he gets (only makes 8 bucks an hour) he spends on beer and cigarettes, then he tries to pawn money off of me. I'm getting tired of his behavior, and it doesn't seem like he'll ever realize what he's doing. I tell him all the time he has to cut down on the drinking, and he agrees, but then the next night goes out and does it again. What can I really do here? Link to comment
