Hi, Merry. I had a friend who would sometimes get drunk, and a few times knocked on my bedroom window in the middle of the night. I went to the other end of the house and sat in the breakfast room and listen to him. It would take a while to get him talked down to anywhere close to sober.

I'm not implying that your sister should do that. Has Linn talked with her friend about her problem drinking, suggested AA, or getting into a detox?

If the calls are annoyingly frequent, she could have her phone number changed or have the friend's number blocked. Maybe Linn could initiate a phone conversation on her own schedule. Or maybe find an appropriate greeting card and write her friend a note expressing her concern for her. I guess what she does depends on their level of friendship.
