i went out for the day yesterday with a mate i used to go to school with. when we were in school this guy was the most charismatic, funny and cool guy in our bunch, he always had the best clothes and i suppose the rest of us aspired to be like him.
these days he is a bit of a mess and after a few break ups with women he has completely let himself go. he has a job skill that could earn him loads of money but keeps getting kicked off jobs due to him being hungover or turning up late and he basically just lives in one pub day in, day out.
anyway, yesterday we went to a boozer to watch the liverpool game....as it was early i didnt want to drink and i was driving but by 2pm he has had 3 pints of cider......we then go to a shopping centre to pick up some stuff for his flat and he has two more beers on the way there. we got back to mine and he asked me if i any cans or bottles in the fridge......then we went to the pub where he just got obliterated and talked about his problems which i listened to all day
when i am with him its got to the stage where i feel i am just moaning at him all of the time. i feel like his mother just trying to coax him into not doing this and not doing that. i felt so guilty about going on at him all day that i rang him this morning only to find he was drinking a can of fosters at 10:30am
i really feel like cutting all ties with the guy but cant as he is a good mate....but i dont reckon i have any chance of getting him to pack the booze in! what shall my next move be??
