Picture this: you're hosting a party and one of your friends, who's been sober for years, brings along a new acquaintance. This new guy not only judges everyone for drinking but also ends up relapsing and causing chaos. Now, your sober friend wants to bring this same guy to your next event. What would you do? 🤷‍♀️🎉
