Not Sure How to Help.. - October 17th 2009, 05:05 PM

So I have this new friend. We've become really close and aren't afraid to tell each other anything. I know that she has a serious weed problem...actually, I don't think she's been completely sober once in all the time that I've spent with her. I really want to help her but I'm not sure there's anything I can do. She'll go on and on about how everything's her fault and it wouldn't be that way if she weren't "such a fucked up druggie". It hurts me to hear her say that and I don't know how to respond. Really all I want is for her to be happy...Any advice would be great...

We're just a million little gods causin' rainstorms
turnin' every good thing to rust <3

The best thing you can do, as her friend is build her moral. Let her know that you think she is a wonderful person and if you do, so many others do.
Try and build her self worth but don't put yourself under too much pressure, it's not your job to make this go away. You can be there to support her but it's a battle she very much has to fight alone.
