    Delta9 the gabber dj?

    Alcoholism can be a symptom of depression or vice versa. That is good he is getting professional help. It sounds like he needs it. I'm real worried about my cousin right now. He's fucking up himself in a similar manner.

    sounds to me like he has many things going through his head maybe?....
    perhaps he is having life problems...family, girls...anything....
    tried covering it up with the beer, and made it worse, notice how u seem to think about more things thouroughly when ur drunk or high...well, at least when ur alone...

    i dont belive ur at fault at all, its just a thing he has to go through in his life to get it straight, that is if he is going to therapy, but I would think he needs detox? alcohol?

    i dunno, but friendships come and go, he probably just got tired of the way shit was going with him and took it out on you...

    i would probably have given this thread a lot more thought if it hadn't of hurt my eyes as much, but none the less, some things can be said.

    leave your boy be. one can do so much and no more. if you genuinely feel that you've done everything you can to help and he has cocked you a deaf, then theres nothing more you can do.

    i recently got over alcoholism, so i know how drinking can change things in and about a person. sometimes it's best to just let something slap you in the face and put you in check. other times you need a shove in the right direction. from what little i can gather, i think you boy needs to figure things out on his own.

    if he pulls together on his own, he'll notice his mistake and rectify them accordingly.
    for now just let him be.

    i don't think your at fault. it was his decisions, but you're his boy and i know what your saying.

    shit comes and goes, like lens said. but help your boy out if you can. other than that, let him fall and he'll learn.

    whoa, how did this black stuff get on my hand

    KING BLING Guest


    I had a group of like 30 friends when I first moved to where I moved in high school. They were little criminals, well we were, but they were breaking into cars - even eachothers - and fighting and selling whatever. They were real good people though, and we had a lot of fun the way a big group with no responcibilites and a cavalier attitude can

    ...until some of my closest of the bunch made the front page of the local newspaer <which is a city> and all the local nightly news coverage. The headline involved baseball bats and Christmas - after the actual D.A., not the assistant, and the sheriff, the real one, came to my parents house and interviewed me Law and Order style and made me go to court on suppeona I had to let that all go.

    yes, a gentle recap would be pleasant.

    reading that would have given me a tumor.
