I think my friend is an alcoholic - October 18th 2009, 08:04 AM

My friend Cat goes out every weekend and gets wasted, and I'm really concerned for her health. She's only 15, so her liver's not properly developed, but she's still damaging it so much. A couple of weeks ago she got so drunk that she had to go into hospital. My friend committed suicide a month ago, and I couldn't bear it to loose someone else. I know it sounds like I'm exaggerating, but another boy in my year almost died from overdosing on alcohol and ecstasy, and I'm in no doubts that Cat could end up in the sam position. Cat's going to a councillor, but as far as I know they're just talking about school - she's apparently got a 'phobia' - she comes in about one day every fortnight. I'm so confused, and I don't know who to speak to. Can anyone help me?



Holly Grogan, my friend, died 16.09.2009.
Goodbye, Holly.
May your smile light up the face of heaven.

I'd term her more binge drinker, not quite alcoholic if its only on weekends , but thats not good the way shes going about it! If you are genuinely worried about her isn't there someone you could speak to, at school? Maybe her councilor? Or her parents? There must be an adults at school who you can go too who will know what to do

Its good your looking out for your friend though, shes lucky to have you!

Have the hospital not picked up on how drunk she was though?



How can one love themselves, when they love absolutely nothing?
Do something that is interesting. If it is not interesting, find out why it is not interesting.
