I have a close friend in the military who only brings up issues he is having when he has been drinking a lot. Sometimes to the point that he would be in tears while talking to me. As someone who is not in the military I cannot fully grasp the things he is saying to me or relate to him during these emotional moments. Someone who has been through this could you give me some advice... Should I bring up the things he said the next day when he is sober? Or should I leave it alone? I generally do not bring it up because I understand it can be a touchy subject that he does not like to talk about. What can I do during these emotional moments for him to know I support him and that it is okay? Is this something common that other people experience frequently?
