What a way to recuperate. This is one handed typing so forgive any errors.

You're being too hard on yourself. Give yourself some credit!

Your daughter has the right to do whatever she wants, but someday her actions are going to catch up to her. She has no money, no job, etc, and eventually her goodwill with her friends will be drained and she'll likely have to return home.

When that happens, I'd suggest offering her a face saving way for her to accept your help, while still making clear what the rules/boundaries are going forward. As far as I can tell from your posts, your expectations and boundaries for her are reasonable. Ultimately, only your daughter can make the decision to seek help/reconciliation with you. All you can do is to be the stable, responsible parent who is there for her once she is mature enough to seek help.
