Dear CeeJay

The short answer has to be "no"

  • We don't own our friends
  • Friendships cannot be frozen
  • Friendship depends on shared interests

I could go on, I really could; but the point is, you cannot turn back the clock, you should never try.

You think it's all about smoking, I doubt it - but even if you are right, you cannot force anyone to 'be your friend'.

People change, their interests and priorities change. And, for most people, their friends change.

Think about your interests, your priorities - you'll probably find that you are much closer to some one else - maybe someone who, a few months ago, you had little in common with. That's life.

Some people keep the same friends, unchanged, for years- lucky old them, one less thing to worry about - but they are very much the minority. Think of it as an inconvenience, but don't try and build a time machine!


Please Note: I am NOT a physician, and any 'health advice' should NOT be taken to be "Medical Advice" - because it is not - my aim is to give you a few possibilities to be thinking about, and some general 'common sense' advice - if my advice says see a doctor, then see a doctor!
