True friends can be the ones you don’t have the most fun with. Do you think people you drink and have fun with are your best friends? This quote is so real because having fun drinking with people is convenience, not real friendship. It’s all about the drinking.
True friends do other things with you
Well, in the middle of the Pandemic, you can’t go drinking. But many cultures revolve around the bar or the pub where people hang out after work or on the weekends. If you quit drinking, you’re not going to be with those friends because it only risks your sobriety. So, are they your real friends? Can they take a walk with you, have a picnic, do holiday decorating? Check out easy recovery self help.
How do you measure a friendship
True friendship is when your friends tell you the truth even when you don’t want to hear it and don’t enable your unhealthy lifestyle choices. Would a true friend advise you to check out Alcoholics Anonymous? A toxic friend will encourage you in the wrong direction and keep your problem a secret from you.
True friends will give you gifts that support your recovery.
