Sometimes when people get control they don't like to let go of it. Do express your thanks for them being there during your difficult times, but let them know that you are doing much better now, and need less assistance.
I agree with Aries that if they don't want to remain as your friend on those conditions, then they really aren't the kind of friends you really need.
Continue to keep up the good work. Keep us posted on how you are doing.
