CLEO (Malaysia) - - BODY & SOUL -

good friend tends to un­der­es­ti­mate her drink­ing ca­pac­ity when we party. More of­ten than not, she gets su­per drunk. I think it’s un­safe, and also kind of trou­ble­some for the rest of us. How do we bring this up lightly? You don’t bring it up lightly. You bring it up with the grav­ity it de­serves. The cru­cial thing is to frame it in terms of your as op­posed to mak­ing her feel judged. If she is verg­ing on al­co­holism – which sounds like it could be a pos­si­bil­ity but you don’t want to use the word just yet – be pre­pared for a lash-out. She may even feel like you’re ask­ing to choose be­tween vodka and you. Also, for now, do make th­ese con­ver­sa­tions very pri­vate.
