Alcohol Related Death

Keven found out someone in his program died recently.  For once it was not heroin related.  He was a man in his 40's who we all knew well.  He seemed like he really wanted sobriety, but just couldn't do it.  Every time I saw him in court the judge would lecture him about not drinking because of his diabetes.

The last time I saw him in court, she pleaded with him "you are going to DIE if you don't take care of yourself!".  And she was right.

I am sharing this because it reminds me that we can warn someone but if they don't take matters into their own hands, warnings don't help.  This man had a family who loved him.  Its sad.

Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara
