I too sent the video out and written information too
In fact I went one step further and picked arguments with them because I said I liked them I couldn t understand them wanting to hurt themselves.
Then the penny dropped, if they were my children I could do something I could show the children that because I care for myself this is what I do and don t drink. Actually no one else really cares about you other than you. You are the number one person who looks after yourself.
Others who care less for themselves will hurt themselves because they have a self worth problem which allows a dependency relationship if not with a partner with a doctor/relative. If is not splenda then it will be some other harmful addiction.
I have learnt that it is not my place to control others but to accept them for what they are.
I will live by example accepting that others who have issues with their self worth will hurt themselves.
