My oldest friend just went thru rehab? Can I help?

  Author:  47539  Category:(General Advice) Created:(4/16/2002 9:22:00 AM)

I just found out yesterday that my oldest friend - over 25 years - just went thru alcohol rehab. I am SO relieved to hear this, as she comes from an alcoholic background and I have been concerned over her drinking for a long time. We haven't really seen each other much over the last few years, due to busy lives, distance (not really that far, just an hour or so) and, to be honest, different lifestyles. But I do love her like a sister. She indicated her new sobriety is causing a strain on her marriage, her husband seemed to like her personality better before, although he wanted her to stop drinking too. Anyway, I would like to show my support and to help her any way I can, but I can't really think of anything to do other than calling her up now and then. Any suggestions? Thanks - Pumbaa

Date: 4/16/2002 9:43:00 AM  From Authorid: 15394    awww Pumbaa I bet calling and being a FRIEND is all she needs from you... maybe an ear to listen to her woes... a friend! I had a best friend go through rehab three different times over ten years, and I used to get sick of hearing about sobriety etc, but it was helpful for her so I was a "friend" ... I used to send her little encouraging postcards... cute pictures and lighthearted sayings so she could get a break from the heavieness of rehab maybe you could try that too   
Date: 4/16/2002 9:44:00 AM  From Authorid: 15394    oh and do her a huge favor and buy her a journal!!! Is great for rehab, and great for self esteem and great for a record of how far she comes in her sobriety...

Date: 4/16/2002 10:18:00 AM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 47539    I love the journal idea! Thanks Jungabel!  
Date: 4/16/2002 10:22:00 AM  From Authorid: 7654    Pick your friend up one day and ya'll go out to lunch. Take her away from her husband for that day . Go for a walk in the park and make up for lost time and let her know that if she ever needs you you will be there..  
Date: 4/16/2002 12:15:00 PM  From Authorid: 40979    Well for one praying would help a lot. just tell her how happy you are for her and let her know your always there for her.  
Date: 4/17/2002 7:52:00 PM  From Authorid: 47983    Pick your friend up to go some where, where you guys can be alone to talk about your lives and stuff. Eat out, dance, whatever! ...~*Jeset*~
