I have a friend who has gone from being a social weekend drinker to a full blown alcoholic over the course of the last few months. The problem is she is neglecting her kid because of it. I plan to talk to her about it when she gets off work tomorrow. Mostly for her daughters sake.
No, I am not going to call social services just yet. Especially since it took guts for her daughter to confide in me, and this is more of a recent issue.
