HOWEVER...the best news is that so far the only sort-of-what-you-might-call-destructive-thing he's done is binge on Ben and Jerry's... no drugs, no booze.. a few pints of Chunky Monkey and choc. chip cookie dough I can live with (he plays a lot of hockey and bikes to work so he can handle the ice cream) - so far so good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now that is a step that is truly ok. Ben and Jerry's will only make you rotund if you do not work it off. It sounds like BF is really coming around and good for him and for You

sometimes we just have to find out what's good and bad for ourselves, and sometimes we make mistakes.

That's when we we need the 'invisible guiding hand' of someone who cares.

Thanks everyone for your support through this "visit" - I think this guy actually left today.. if not we're leaving town tonight for Toronto so I hope this guy is gone when we get back!

It was pretty sad I did see my bf's friend and he's so far gone (alcoholism) that he has the perma-shakes until he has his first drink...... I think my BF is caught between compassion for this guy, respect for their shared painful history and anger that this guy is self-destructing.. a very powerful combination.

And to top it off I do think my BF stayed on the wagon.... good news all around today.

Absolutely right and a real eye opener for him too. Now he sees where it leads. Have fun in Toronto. :p
