Friend of mine has gone completely off the rails, totally hitting the booze every day, just about making it into work (only works 3 1/2 hrs a day) and been threatened with the sack.
Has left behind a Father and daughter, missed the daughter's birthday completely and says she has found where she belongs in a complete shithole of a pub with lowlifes everywhere. Now I'm not one to judge, can speak with the most downtrodden and unfortunate folk you'll ever meet and I understand we're all just a couple of choices away from homelessness ourselves but this is no place for a Mother and partner to be when she has a home to go to. I just don't know what to say to one of my best friend's (her partner) who is completely devastated and frankly on the verge of suicide about this.
I suppose any advice would be helpful and what way to approach the subject with either the woman or him as I'm close to both of them but I'm majorly pissed off with her (without saying at the moment) and devastated for him and his daughter (who is coping surprisingly 9 years old (that's how I know them, same age as my little one)).
My Mrs says that the woman has had a nervous breakdown and just needs time and counselling, I really think she's lost the plot and is bizarrely in her 'happy place' ignoring all life's problems and disappearing down a glass.
