Picked up Nick along the Danforth and dropped him on a corner downtown.
He spoke quickly, like his nerves were totally fried. He's maybe 25. Getting in my car his first sentence was, "Got out of rehab yesterday. 2-1/2 months without a drink and when I got home yesterday all I could think of was drinking. So I had one, just one to settle my nerves. Won't drink today though, well maybe one. One is okay right? One drink a day that's it...
So we had a pretty good conversation. He promised to contact AA but wouldn't wait until I looked up their number. I'm going to need to keep that kind of info more at the ready.
Anyway, I think Nick has a long road ahead of him. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
