I have a friend who first I will say is one of the worst co-dependant people I have ever met.He met a girl about three months ago now has moved her and her 4 kids into his house. So they finally have their first big fight the other day involving some pretty messed up things, things I would not put up with for one second. During all this my friend starts drinking whiskey again while abusing valium, he thinks that just because we used to be getting high buddies that I am his best friend in the world and his main "lifeline" when all it's been for the last week is me listening to him ramble on drunkenly. I have a panic disorder and he's kicking it in. I have been supportive but you can't talk to this fuckin guy when he's drinking on benzos! He rattles on and makes no sense this past week and I cannot take it anymore. I just made up a story about some bullshit while ago after him being here for only 15 minutes. I had to leave. I'm back home now with my phone off and not answering the door. I am alot like him but I have to stop smoking weed right now. I HAVE to stop and he brings weed around constantly. When I avoid him he gets hostile and gives me the I thought we were friends deal I am too damn old for this.I am battling addiction and I need advise on how to handle something like this. I don't need this shit, ...he won't listen to a word I say... and I am done. If that makes me an asshole then I guess i'm just an asshole. Any person who GIVES me panic attacks I have to get them away from me fast. He needs to work on his-self and I need to work on me. I just hate having to hide and tell lies... walk up to the store and around 10 blocks and come back home just to get peace. I can't do anything for him, have given the best advise which falls on drunk and def ears..... ugh! assassoid added 2 Minutes and 23 Seconds later... I must add my last girlfriend died an alcoholic death and I absolutely hate being around alcohol... the drunken ramblings....i never could talk to her and I know it's the same now with my friend.
