Jerry loves his friends but has realized they are a hindrance to his personal change.

"I have this group of friends who I really love, but I'm not who I was when we all met," shared Jerry. "I tried many times to change myself, but I couldn't because I was and am an alcoholic. This group of friends is nothing but drinking."

Jerry added that he wanted to stop drinking, as well as change his future and legacy.

"I told them a lot of times but always got pressed with the 'one last time' thing. I was weak and usually went for it," he said.

A few weeks ago, Jerry celebrated his 30th birthday. His friends showed up for the celebration and later convinced him to go out drinking with them.

However, Jerry told them to stay at home, and then, later on, he agreed to drink with them, which he deeply regrets.

"It was a mistake," he said. "I was regretting it the entire time and as I got drunker and drunker I became more saddened about doing it."

"A few days ago I sent a group text to all my friends so they know that I've been trying to get sober for years and it's hard, but instead of being supportive or happy it just makes everything worse with their pressure to drink," he said.

"They know that drinking interferes with my plans for my life, but they don't seem to care," Jerry added. "Anyway, I told them that I would move forward with my life and that as of this moment I do not see them in my future."

Jerry received calls and texts from his friends, but he chose to disregard them. According to him, he feels happier now, as he feels like a weight has been lifted off his shoulders.

Despite this, Jerry said he is not sure whether he did the right thing by ignoring his friends just because he wanted to change his life or not.
