My Fault

So, I recently slipped with my own recovery after nearly 7 years sober. I drank 3 beers last Saturday night. A close frioend of mine who has been near death with his alcoholism said to me "well, obviously sobriety doesn't work, I might as well not even try." Now I feel guilty beyond belief. If he dies of a drug overdose, I would probably blame myself at this point.

Well, we know that each person is responsible for himself. You can go back to your friend, say it was a big mistake to drink again that you regret, and tell him that sobriety really does work and you are going to stick with it. Maybe it is an opportunity to show him that.

That is very true, and we are great at finding excuses to drink. Next time I talk to him, I will tell him that sobriety has made a huge difference in my life, emphasize that it was a mistake, and the benefits of sobriety.
