I mentioned in another post about a friend joking about her 4 year old finding her passed out in her closet covered in vomit after a night of drinking.
People mentioned I should report it but I think I didn't mention her husband was home taking care of the kids.
So she drank, passed out, husband got up with the two kids, one came to find her in the closet, covered in puke and passed out.
Her mom and my mom are good friends. Her mom was probably a functioning alcoholic, but seems to have mellowed with age.
My mom does say her friend, my friends mom, does mention being concerned for daughter and the grand kids, but not for drinking issues, more for
how my friend over schedules them, her and her husband use babysitters too much, etc. so she is critical.
My friend is a very successful CFO, her husband is a doctor. If I say something I am pretty sure our friendship will be over.
Should I mention anything? We go out to coffee maybe 3 times a year, that is about it. So not super close. But we were at one point.
Question is, in that scenario, would you try to talk to her about her drinking or leave it?
