I spoke with my old high school sweetheart about a month ago. I told him how I was going into treatment because I knew he also had a problem. We haven't talked in years and it turns out his alcohol problem is worse than I thought. He told me he had been in treatment 3 or 4 times, been to AA, has 3 or 4 DUIs, last one a felony. He sounded pretty hopeless but wants to get sober. Well I talked to him again yesterday and it turns out he tried to kill himself, and in a pretty horrific way; he stabbed himself. He was in the hospital for acouple weeks, but now he is back out and still drinking. His liver is messed up too. Nothing I can say is going to help him. I'm pretty sure he won't be alive for long if he continues.
