Exclamation I need advice! - March 28th 2011, 02:31 PM

i have a friend who feels like drinking himself to death is the best solution. i have tried talking to him to make him see its not worth it but he is insisting. a couple of my other friends are talking with him to. The worst part is is that he has denied my friendship and wont listen to what i say any more... hes scaring me and i cant afford to lose him The weird part is that he was the one who talked me outta cutting and suicide, he made me see that life had a purpose and now a broken heart has the best of him.... advice is greatly appreciated.

I suggest you tell an adult- a parent, a guidance counsellor, a teacher- about what's going on, even if he told you not to (I don't know if he has, but if he has, ignore it. He needs help.) They can help him, and you and your friends shouldn't have to be the only ones fighting against this.

Sometimes we can be stronger for other people than we can be for ourselves. Actually, I think that happens a lot of the time. Make sure he knows you're there for him. You're a great person for trying to prevent him from doing anything he'll regret even though he's denied your friendship.

Yes he has told me not to talk to anyone about his condition. However i agree with you and i feel obligated to. The only thing im worried about is that if he has someone approach him about whats going on he will feel cornered and defeated and move quicker into committing suicide, ya know?
Stronger for others than ourselves, so very true. thank you for the help, now i just need to find someone to talk to and get the courage to do it. Thank again.

he may be upset that you went behind his back and told someone but i would tell someone anyway and then in the end he will know that you really do care about him and you would also be doing your part as a friend
