What can I do to help my friend not to fall back when we go clubbing, to concerts or festivals?

    If I were you and it would be in my hand, I would try to be up-to-date with events your friend may like to attend, and then organize a party or reunion on the event day to get him/her spending time with you to be away from falling back.

    However this is way too much easy to say than done, because your friend may not want to lose the chance of going clubbling to be with you, or he/she may suspect you are wanting to keep him/her away and get upset with you if can't understand you are simply wanting to avoid a relapse.

    You can still have fun without taking alcohol. But do not expect to avoid alcohol if you planning to attend a drinking party. If you want to avoid alcohol then avoid places where alcohol may be sold or avoid friends who may influence you to drinking.
