I have a friend who has taken to drinking. They are middle aged and never really drunk before. Their behaviour is very strange and damaging and I am concerned for them. I phoned a Drug and A phone counselling line and the person said,

"it's their right to drink if they want to. It has nothing to do with you"

Her attitude was appalling.

Are they all like this?

It seemed like I had no right to even call if my concerns.

Anywhere I can call without judgement?
