I just had a call from a guy i was in rehab with telling me that he had relapsed and wanted help. He called me because he really wanted to stop again and needed someone to talk to but didn't want to worry anyone too close to him. He suggested he could come round to my flat tonight for a coffee and chat but i suggested he tries not to drink more tonight and we could meet either at his or mine tomorrow. It is 9.30pm here and i have an appointment early tomorrow morning, plus i live on my own and i don't know what he is like after a few drinks. I hope i did the right thing, i really want to help him as i know exactly how he feels.....i've relapsed myself and not known where to turn. It feels strange being the one asked for help, yet good at the same time. Does anyone have any advice they can give me?
