@PaisleyMedic:  Ever heard the old saying “Misery loves company?” Here is my take and I know from personal experience. She probably doesnt have another friend in the world. Thats why she is insistant. Typically people with her kind of problem emotional drain everyone around them. Most people cant keep up with the roller coaster that goes along with someone who drinks constantly, makes irresponsible choices and puts the lives of others at risk.  So eventually acquaintances and friends drift off because of it. Eventually the person is left to try to get new friends. Often they are well received and the life of the party until you start seeing the behaviors you mentioned.

My advice? Be firm but polite that you dont have the time or the inclination to revive a friendship with her. If you all work together, then Im sure she has to follow the same rules as everyone else. I doubt she would do anything at work to jeopardize her job. I.e. your probably safe from her.

As far as being ambushed. If she did it again, I would just firmly say, this isnt the time or place and I am not interested in having this conversation.

Be busy!! Be unavailable.
