Can you remain friends with someone who is a functioning alcoholic?


This friend is a functioning alcoholic since they are able to maintain a home and their financial responsibilities but behind the scenes their life seems to revolve around alcohol. The other people in their life are also addicts so it is impossible to remain friends if you don't join them. How do you help them or do you leave and hope for the best? Speaking to them about their problem created a wedge.
