My friend of over 20 years clearly has trouble controlling herself around alcohol (she has a DUI and recently blacked out while I was with her, then she fell on me and broke my foot... and has not offered to help out in any way since). After the accident with my foot, I asked her to please give me space and to get help, but as far as I know, she has not done so. She has given me a lot of space, but I also figured she'd send a card or do SOMETHING to express that she is sorry for what happened. I recently saw pictures of her going out with other friends, so I assume she has not curbed her consumption. I've been her friend for so long that I can't even imagine my life without her. But if she chooses not to stop drinking heavily, I don't think I can risk having her in my life. It makes me really sad, but I worry I have to cut her out entirely. Should I check in with her? Or should I just wait until she comes around and actually sincerely apologizes to me for the damage she has done? Or is there really no hope of this ever getting better and I should cut my losses?
